Support for Evacuees.
posted 8 months ago by CERV from Community Emergency Response Volunteers of the Monterey Peninsula
As of 10 a.m. Wednesday, the American Red Cross continues to work with Monterey County officials to support three Temporary Evacuation Points for those affected by county evacuation orders. The following sites are available for any residents under an evacuation order in need of safety: Carmel Valley Library, 65 W. Carmel Valley Rd., Carmel, CA 93942 Toro Park School, 22500 Portola Dr., Salinas, CA, 93908 Both temporary evacuation points are open 24 hours a day until evacuations are lifted. In Monterey County, the Red Cross is working with our county and hotel partners to ensure that those under mandatory evacuation orders have safe sheltering options. Providing hotel accommodations takes time, so the Red Cross requests that evacuees — in need of a safe place to stay — go to a TEP as early as possible to begin the process of requesting this kind of housing support. Monterey County residents are advised to call 211 if they have questions regarding evacuation orders, temporary evacuation centers, and safety information. Assistance is available in English and Spanish. Information is also available on the Monterey County EOC web site. Monterey County residents who are under a mandatory evacuation order may call the SPCA for Monterey County at 831-373-2631 if they are unsure what to do with their pets or with livestock. Thanks to Patsy Gasca at ARC for this information
