Coastal Region Evacuation and Sheltering - Standard Operating Guide (2019)

The CRES is not intended as a stand-alone sheltering and evacuation guide; it is intended to support in-county response and operations as required to prevent the loss of life and/or property. Elements of the CRES-SOG may be used for all hazards.   

The primarily focus of the guide is on response to a coastal threat that necessitates regional coordination, with State support, for evacuation and sheltering operations.

Please be advised that this guide is a living document and it is periodically reviewed and updated to reflect changes in policy or procedures. Please refer to the Guide Maintenance section for more detail as they relate to major changes.
