Texas Sheltering Plan (TEEX) I am extremely encouraged and optimistic that we are closing in on the final objective of a two year effort to develop a comprehensive Shelter Plan for the evacuation of communities along the coast of Texas. There is and will always be, details and coordination to complete. It will never achieve 100%. However, we are far better than we have ever been. Your goal is to achieve Ninja Warrior: proficiency with the Shelter Data Base. Fundamental to success, especially for RlOs who are in hosting districts. I have approved an aggressive effort to achieve operational employment of the Shelter Plan. What will take place over the next three months will require your utmost cooperation and initiative. Beginning in April there will be a series of four Shelter Workshops conducted across the hosting area of operation. The purpose will provide an opportunity to jurisdictions how to use the data base. Secondly, it will provide an opportunity to input shelters other than those identified by the Red Cross.
