REAL-TIME, CONTINUOUSLY UPDATED FOR EMERGENCY MANAGERS
Shelter data reflects all disaster shelters across the United States. Information is updated at least daily, and more often during disasters, including location, capacity, current number of shelter residents, and the date and time of the last update for each activated shelter.
WHAT IS DISPLAYED
Shelters are only displayed if they are active and open. Shelter managers open and close shelters as appropriate to local needs and the information is updated from every active shelter at least once a day.
The application maps locations and shelter details across the United States. Zoom in to the local area. View shelter details: the agency managing the shelter, capacity of the shelter and current population, the associated disaster event, the specific shelter address and location and driving directions from your location.
LIST VIEW & DISASTER NEWS
View open shelters by state, jump to the latest disaster information via the Disaster Online Newsroom, and donate to help the American Red Cross respond to those in need.
NATIONAL SHELTER SYSTEM
The application uses data about open shelters from the American Red Cross National Shelter System (NSS). The NSS contains information about more than 60,000 potential disaster facilities and is used to track and report on shelter information during disasters.
The NSS enables emergency managers and disaster relief workers to identify relevant information for all shelters in use and to develop effective response strategies before disasters strike.
This application was contributed to the American Red Cross by VisionLink® in Boulder, CO, providing enterprise software (CommunityOS™) for multi-agency client and case management, community resource management and referral, and disaster relief solutions. VisionLink operates the National Shelter System for the American Red Cross.
