The effects of hurricanes Katrina and Rita in 2005 have made it clear how critical it is to have a plan in place—before disaster strikes. Whether natural—such as hurricanes, floods, tornadoes, or earthquakes—or manmade, all disasters can wreak havoc in your community and leave survivors homeless for days, months, even years.

Based on ULI’s extensive experience in documenting how communities are built, this booklet will help you develop an advance plan for temporary shelter that will assist evacuees during crisis, and get them back on their feet with due speed in the days that follow.
