***OPEN Flagler County Shelter Locations:***
Shelters will open 10/6/16 at 6:00am
October 6, 2016 In preparation for the impacts of Hurricane Matthew, the Flagler County Emergency Operation Center opened two shelters at 6 a.m., Thursday, one to accommodate special needs while the other accommodates the general population and people with pets.
Shelters, whether special needs or general population, are available as a last resort for those who have no other place to go, said Steve Garten, public safety emergency manager. Special needs shelters provide only limited medical care, and it is up to the individual to bring a 72-hour supply of all medications, and personal items.
Sleeping bags, pillows and blankets should be among those personal items, as cots are available in limited numbers. Air mattresses are not permitted.
The following are the only two shelter sites which have been activated:
Rymfire Elementary, located at 1425 Rymfire Drive, Palm Coast, will accommodate those with special needs, people who require assistance with daily living or who have medical conditions that prevent or hinder their ability to care for themselves, as well as those who require electricity for oxygen. A family member or caregiver should stay at the shelter with the individual.
Bunnell Elementary, 305 N. Palmetto Street, Bunnell, will accommodate other residents who have no other place to go. Pets including dogs, cats, birds, rabbits, rodents and turtles are the allowed pets. There is a four pet maximum. Pet owners should bring current vaccination records and supplies, including crates and medications.
