Every chemical plant that has a potential exposure to a large-scale release of chemicals should have a shelter program. Sheltering is a practical approach and a logical alternative versus attempting a site-wide evacuation. Evacuations can be dangerous, unorganized, and have employee accountability concerns. This presentation covers shelter design, location considerations, plume modeling, rate loss testing analysis, emergency operations center responsibilities, and shelter location equipment.

Learning Objectives:
1. Recall considerations for shelter design and locations.
2. Discuss annual shelter evaluations and maintenance.
3. Summarize shelter rate-loss testing and analytical analysis.
4. Describe incident command leadership roles and responsibilities.
