Shelter Management Training - June 13, 2018

In light of last year's devastating North Bay fires and in an effort to be better prepared in case of any emergency, Mill Valley Recreation in conjunction with the American Red Cross held a shelter management training for Recreation Staff at the Mill Valley Community Center on June 13th from 9 AM until 4 PM.

Over 25 staff participated in the training, which included a mock set up of the evacuation center and potential scenarios that the staff may face in the mobilization and management of a shelter site. Over 15 different scenarios challenged the staff during the mock shelter activation.

The staff worked to solve each of these challenges and are now better prepared in case of the activation of an actual emergency shelter site here in Mill Valley
