Multi-Agency Sheltering/Sheltering Support Plan Template (MASPT)

The purpose of the Multi-Agency Sheltering/Sheltering Support Plan Template (MASPT) is to supplement a jurisdiction’s Emergency Operations Plan and/or Mass Care Annex and is intended to provide guidance and suggested procedures for a jurisdiction to consider in the development of a sheltering plan that focuses on their role of managing and/or supporting sheltering activities. Two years in the works, the comprehensive multi-agency sheltering document was developed in coordination with FEMA Headquarters and Regional Mass Care staff, the American Red Cross, the Salvation Army, State Mass Care Coordinators, local emergency management, and the FEMA Office of Disability Integration and Coordination.  The template is based on best practices and concepts that have been proven during previous disasters.

    As federal, state, and local government funds continue to dwindle, compromising the needed and necessary infrastructure for first responders and disaster recovery experts, now more then ever we need to assemble a stronger partnership with the private sector to satisfy all the needs surrounding emergencies and disasters, natural and intentional. Communication and transportation are always at the heart of this issue, and it’s about time we get serious about solving it once and for all.

    Good morning,

    I am going to be looking to use this template to bring together response organizations within the County we serve. Can I get a copy of the MASPT in a format that I can edit?

    Thank you for all of the hard work you put into this template.
