A key component of the Avalon Emergency Management plan is an agreement with the Cumberland County Technical Education Center to serve as a Red Cross designated shelter for the Borough of Avalon.  The school is located 44 miles from Avalon and includes ample room for Avalon residents to stay.  The facility also includes full kitchen facilities and an expansive nursing area to provide medical care if needed.  The Borough has initiated a memorandum of understanding with the American Red Cross who will provide certified shelter operators and open the facility for Avalon under the auspices of the South Jersey Shore Branch of the American Red Cross.  This plan has the full support of the Cumberland County Office of Emergency Management.  This shelter will accommodate members of the public from other communities as well.  Avalon will lend support to the shelter with the Borough’s certified and trained American Red Cross volunteers in this reciprocal agreement.
