Shelter Locator can be used by emergency management agencies responsible for providing citizens a safe place when they are displaced from their residence during a natural or man-made incident. Emergency shelter status and shelter-specific information (capacity, current occupancy, special needs, etc.) is often provided and managed by Incident Management Systems like WebEOC from Intermedix.
