Several administrators from Gadsden, Leon and Liberty Counties are trying to find adequate shelter for special needs residents. They say several deadly storms have taught them a valuable lesson to be prepared.
Community leaders are hoping to fine tune their emergency plans, rather than waiting last minute.
Sylvia Byrd said, "Hurricane Andrew was the last real whopper that came through, and that was pretty strong, but Katrina brought it home again that you've got to look at everything as a possibility for things to go wrong, and so if this happens, what do we do?"
Emergency management administrators want to have a safe and organized plan in action if and when disaster strikes.
