Looking Back, Looking Forward—FEMA Think Tank 2.0

Libraries and Athletic Clubs

It seems that because public and college libraries are already set up with security that setting them up either as places for the disaster responders to rest/relax at and/or to provide shelter is logical and would require minimal efforts. For example, why not provide back-up generators for libraries and contract with them to aid in a disaster instead of closing up?


The same for athletic clubs that have security and ample showers and room to accommodate either disaster responders and/or shelter during/after a disaster. Again, providing back-up power generators would be a small investment in a place that is already set up to render assistance both during and after a disaster with minimal investment and planning.
