South Bend, Washington – The Pacific County Emergency Management Agency is embarking on a long-term project to identify and assess the sheltering capacity within Pacific County.
In the initial phase of the project, PCEMA has developed a ten question survey where respondents can indicate their interest in sheltering persons, animals, or both persons and animals.
The survey is primarily electronic and a link is being emailed to various facilities in the county who may be interested in participating. Pacific County Emergency Management has worked to gather email addresses associated with facilities that might serve as a shelter. If your facility is interested and did not receive an email with a link to the survey, please contact the PCEMA office at 360-875/642-9340 or 360-875/642-9338. You may also contact PCEMA with a mailing address if you do not have Internet access.
The survey process is expected to conclude by the end of November, at which time answers will be evaluated and a continued work plan developed based upon survey responses.
