Where is my nearest Disaster shelter?

During a hurricane or other natural disasters, Brien McMahon HS on Highland Ave, is the primary emergency shelter. Because resources to staff, 2 shelters at once may be limited, we open BMHS first, then would open Norwalk High. The shelter will have cots and wool blankets, but we recommend residents pack a 'go-kit' with clothes, pillow, medication and sleeping bag, etc. Both shelters are pet-friendly, but residents must bring crates and basic supplies for their pets.
