SpNS Shelters (Special Needs Shelters)
For elderly, physically, mentally or sensory disabled, visually or hearing impaired residents or those who need supplemental oxygen. Evacuees should be accompanied by a caregiver if this type of assistance normally is needed. SpNS are not for people who need 24-hour dedicated care, a hospital bed, ventilator, other complex care or isolation patients. These individuals should discuss other shelter arrangements with their physician or home health service provider or caregiver.
PF Shelters (Pet Friendly)
Small animals only, must be crated and cared for by owners (leash, food, water must be brought and will not be provided); will be housed in a separate location at shelter. Only the fairgrounds houses people and pets in the same location.
