The need may arise to find shelter for people from your community or outside your area. In this scenario you should have already:

• Identified a suitable shelter, such as a village hall, or public house
• Identified suitable members of the community to help manage the shelter
• Have up to date contact numbers for the shelter and the staff
• Identified those in the community that have skills, such as cooking and first aid that will be able to support the people in the shelter. When the shelter is needed you should: • Contact the key holder and open the shelter and call out the staff
• Make the people as comfortable as they can be and address any needs
• Make contact, if you can, with the NCC Emergency Planning Team
