Did you know?
The Oysterponds School is the designated emergency shelter for Orient/Orient Pt. residents and the Greenport School is the designated emergency shelter for East Marion Residents. We truly hope that we never need to use them, but it is always good to have a plan in place. Experts tell us to be prepared to survive for up to 72 hours before outside help arrives. Prepare a shelter kit to bring with you to include the following: 1) Change of clothing, rain gear, sturdy shoes, 2) Toiletries and personal items, medications, 3) Blankets or sleeping bag and pillow, 4) Identification, 5) Games, toys, books, 6) Special items for infants or elderly, 6) Non-perishable foods, 7) Sufficient water for 3 days, 8) Cell phone, flash light, extra batteries. Thanks to the Red Cross, we have a supply of cots and blankets readily available.
