September 27, 2018, City Council Regular Meeting
33. Motion to Approve Emergency Shelter Agreement with Georgia Southern University, Armstrong Campus
Strategic Priority
Public Safety

The City of Savannah has negotiated an agreement with Georgia Southern University – Armstrong Campus to house City critical workforce personnel during a hurricane. Personnel would deploy around the City based on storm strength. The agreement would allow the City to station up to 500 personnel at the facility for tropical cyclones up to and including Category 2 hurricanes, with Georgia Southern's concurrence.

The agreement was previously executed during Hurricane Irma in 2017. The only substantive changes to the agreement are for the provision of pre-packaged meals with a timely request from the City.

Exhibit A is a floor plan of the Armstrong Center with the area for the City’s use delineated. It is unchanged from the 2017 agreement.
