Hampton Roads Overnight Shelter Exercises

Shelter Exercise ImageHAMPTON ROADS - LET’S GET READY TOGETHER! - SHELTER EXERCISE FOR PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES &ACCESS/FUNCTIONAL NEEDS

City of Norfolk – April 6 & 7, 2018 and City of Hampton – August 10, 2018

The Hampton Roads Planning District Commission (HRPDC) using funding from the Eastern Virginia Healthcare Coalition and State Homeland Security Grants sources conducted two overnight shelter exercises. One in the City of Norfolk and the other in the City of Hampton. The drills were conducted to exercise the regional capability of sheltering people with disabilities and access/functional needs. The exercises were two pronged; one to engage the disabilities community in shelter planning, and second to demonstrate the establishment and operation of the medical area of a shelter using the Shelter Support Unit (SSU) previously developed and purchased by the Hampton Roads Metropolitan Medical Response System.

The scope of this exercise was limited to the host city agencies and partners involved in sheltering activities. Each exercise tested the following sheltering components: Notification, Activation, and Demobilization
