Secure Storage at Shelters

Securing personal possessions at temporary shelters has proved a problem in New York following Hurricane Sandy. Secure storage areas for those fleeing their homes seeking shelter have been, for the most part, non-existant. In many cases only a place under a cot has been made available for things to be "dumped".  It would be helpful for FEMA of a local disaster planning organization to have trailers equipped with lockable storage lockers that could be parked near shelters and properly guarded. Such lockers should be larger than high school lockers and provide a place for personnel clothing (which takes up space) to be stored, as well as valuables.

Great! Contact FEMA.  Do you have their number?  If not, I will attempt to get it for you.  Are you in need of this information?
