American Red Cross & City of Nashua Have Opened Shelter In Response to Hurricane Sandy

American Red Cross & City of Nashua Have Opened Shelter In Response to Hurricane Sandy

The American Red Cross and the City of Nashua have opened a shelter at Nashua High School South as of 8:00 a.m. on Monday, October 29, 2012. This shelter will be "Pet---Friendly" and will be able to provide some support to those with medical needs.

Nashua High School South is located at 36 Riverside Street, Nashua, NH 03062

Those relocating to shelters should bring the following personal items:

  • Bedding
  • Dietary required foods, snacks
  • Personal hygiene items
  • Medications
  • Games, books, toys to occupy children
  • Pets must have a crate, food, and leashes

Trained medical staff will be available to help with medical needs, but the shelters are not intended to take the place of a hospital. They are intended for those who have minor medical conditions that are stable but who require daily assistance, such as medicine administration, dressing changes or who are
oxygen dependent.

Caregivers must accompany the individual. Items to bring include medical equipment and oxygen tanks, all medication and supplies, personal items, any special foods or liquids for dietary needs, and important documents, such as phone numbers and insurance information.

Those that do not have transportation to the shelter or require additional assistance will be able to call (603) 589.3456.

It is important to note that if you are staying in your home, make sure you have your emergency kit ready. It is very possible that our area could be without power for an extended period of time. Top off your vehicles with fuel and practice good generator safety.

If you have an emergency CALL 9---1---1! If you DO NOT have an emergency call the Nashua Emergency Info Line at (603) 589.3456 for assistance!
