Liz McDonald, senior director for emergency services for the Rhode Island chapter of the American Red Cross, said Saturday that the agency plans to help provide housing for the seven families but said that some of them are staying with friends or family.
As of 7:30 Wednesday night, 16 people were staying at the shelter, Elizabeth McDonald, the Red Cross' senior director of emergency services, said in a statement.
"We will work with the community to make sure that people affected by the fire have a safe place to stay tonight and will continue to assess needs over the next few days," McDonald said.
American Red Cross Rhode Island Chapter Senior Emergency Services Director Elizabeth McDonald said the exercise will focus on sheltering and feeding activities; testing communications methods; information sharing and dissemination; and proper allocation and movement of resources.
"Major hurricanes impacting the Northeast are thankfully infrequent, but it only takes one storm to create major damage," said McDonald. "This hurricane exercise will help the Red Cross plan for the worst, even while we hope for the best this hurricane season." The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) predicts that 12-18 named storms, 6-10 hurricanes and 3-6 major hurricanes will occur this year. The 2011 Atlantic hurricane season started June 1 and ends November 30. "Just as the Red Cross is getting ready for hurricane season, we'd like everyone in Rhode Island to take a few simple steps today to be better prepared," said McDonald. This exercise is an opportunity for us to work together to make that partnership stronger in the interest of public safety," McDonald said.
