Emergency Shelters

An Emergency Shelter is a facility set up to provide temporary housing for persons unable to continue their living arrangement in separate family units.

In Barbados shelters are listed in two categories. A Category 1 Shelter may be used during a hurricane or other hazard event, while Category 2 Shelters may be used if they are still in a reasonable condition after a hazard event or disaster.

Category 1 Shelters are listed below. However, you can click here for more information regarding shelters.
