Many city Emergency Operation Centers, Red Cross agencies, and other emergency response teams have use of schools written into their plans. When students are not present, schools will be asked by state and local government to provide facilities for various activities from Red Cross shelters to Points of Dispensing. By keeping availability open, those entities will be able to put in reservations allowing districts to track everything the schools are participating in on behalf of the community. As for non-essential reservations, please see "Why should facility owners like school districts 'suspend' a reservation rather than simply canceling or declining it?"

How can Facilitron help?
Facilitron will continue to monitor incoming reservation requests and will work with emergency management requests and school districts on providing what the community needs in a safely managed way. Everything will be recorded and tracked for future reporting.
