LLIS Innovative Practice: Resource Management for Providing Mass Care Services: An Innovative Tool for Estimating Shelter and Feeding Resources [open pdf - 549KB]
"The Florida Estimated Mass Care Requirements Spreadsheet provides a standard and unified approach that state and county Mass Care officials, private sector partners, and non-governmental organizations can use in planning to estimate feeding and sheltering resources. The 2013 National Mass Care Exercise (NMCE), held in conjunction with the 2013 Florida Statewide Hurricane Exercise, provided the state Mass Care participants from across the nation the opportunity to test the effectiveness of the spreadsheet. The spreadsheet proved to be a 'logical and methodical' planning asset for optimizing feeding and shelter resource utilization."
