Guidelines for using safe shelters

The shelters have water and subsistence food (biscuits, bananas, etc.), as well as folding camp beds, but not in sufficient quantity for their capacity of 1700 people. Everyone remains responsible for their own comfort during their stay in the shelter.

It is therefore essential to arrive in the shelter with ready-to-eat provisions: water, bricks of fruit juice, bricks or tubes of milk, bread, rusks, biscuits, energy bars, chocolate bars, compotes, sachets of peanuts ...

For small children, provide bottles, milk, small pots, as well as diapers and toiletries, a plastic bowl and, if necessary, medical treatment in progress.

It is necessary to prepare a bag with your personal effects: cutlery, toiletries, wipes, towels, sheets or blanket, pillow, first aid kit (bandages, disinfectant, compresses, regularly used medicines ...), a flashlight and a battery-powered transistor. Personal folding or inflatable beds are allowed and even encouraged. Bringing earplugs is a good idea.

Do not forget identity documents, important papers, medicines and prescriptions in the event of ongoing medical treatment, as well as a health and / or vaccination record.

People undergoing heavy medical treatment or having major health problems should contact their doctor or hospital in time, who will decide what to do.

Before leaving home, it is important to notify neighbors and relatives of where you are going. Also, do not forget to secure your home by turning off the water and electricity and bringing all moving objects inside, which could turn into projectiles.

Rules of life to respect ...

In a safe shelter, the rules of social life are essential: good citizenship, hygiene, conviviality, respect for others.

Alcohol and tobacco are prohibited.

The use of fire, weapons or sharp objects is to be prohibited.

Containment is mandatory and applies to everyone.

The managers designated by the Community are the only interlocutors at the command post.

The presence of territorial police officers will be considered for good order and security.
