SAFE HAVENS.....In coordination with local elected officials and local faith based organizations; We will open two “safe havens” in Coffee County where people can seek shelter from the pending storm.
Both of these locations will open at 6 PM Sunday 9/10/17 and are project to close no later than Tuesday morning 9/12/17 depending on storm conditions.
The locations are:
First Baptist Church In Enterprise, 302 N Main St, Enterprise, AL
Church of Christ in Elba 715 Troy Rd, Elba, AL
There is room for 120 people in each location.
Cots will be available. No Pets, weapons, illegal drugs or alcohol allowed. Intoxicated individuals are subject to be turned away.
Please don’t come before 6 PM on Sunday as we will not be prepared to assist you.
Please bear in mind if between now and opening we find that we will be more directly affected by Hurricane IRMA with winds greater than 74 MPH we will not be able to house anyone in these locations as they are not approved for this amount of wind. Alternative plans are being considered in case of this event and updated information will be sent as soon as possible.
