Hurricane Irma has still not turned north, so no one currently knows anything about the conditions in Spring Hill on Sunday and Monday. HOWEVER:
For those who are members and friends of Dayspring PCA, our church is a sturdy building which may serve as an unofficial evacuation center for you and yours. Even your pets!
If you choose to stay in your homes, that’s great–it’s your decision. If you plan to leave, that’s fine, too. But reply to this email to let us know your decision.
Beginning at 9 AM on Sunday morning, you may come to your church and set up your supplies, planning on a 48 hour stay.
You should bring water (minimum one gallon per person per day) and all standard hurricane supplies with plenty to share. Bedding such as air mattresses and blankets/sheets are very important. We will go into the community with any extra supplies.
Building Usage Rules:
1) No generators inside. We will all die.
2) All pets must be caged and on non-carpeted floors.
3) Rooms continue to be used as their current purpose; young kids in nursery, cook in kitchen, eat in kitchen/fellowship hall area, etc.
4) Shelter is for family and friends of Dayspring PCA. Because we cannot do immediate background checks (as they do at public shelters), we will not admit anyone who we do not personally know. No exceptions. We will not allow criminals and predators take advantage of our families.
5) Keep all valuables possible inside your vehicles on the property.
We will generally plan on an informal Sunday morning service and informal Sunday evening service, around 11am and 7pm.
Please call 352-686-9392 (which will go to Rick Epsteen) for questions not easily answered by this post.
