Pinellas County Emergency Management (PCEM) is reassessing all school sites for utilization and capacity during an evacuation. Meetings have been scheduled with City Managers to identify additional community sites. Additionally, PCEM is working with the State to assess newly identified community sites for risk-level. Lastly, Penny IV funding will support implementing mitigation measures for shelters including a generator at Lealman Exchange. PCEM is currently coordinating with Pinellas County Schools to identify how to utilize Penny IV funding for other potential shelter sites.
