The East Central College of the State of Missouri and the Franklin County Chapter, American Red Cross desire to cooperate in meeting the human needs growing out of disasters. To effect coordination and utilization of the resources and efforts of both organizations, this statement of understanding has been prepared.

Experience shows that it is frequently necessary for the Red Cross to use school buildings for mass shelters.

The Franklin County Chapter, American Red Cross, recognized the school buildings are the property of local school districts and that permission for use of these buildings must be obtained from local school officials.

The East Central College recognizes the primary responsibility of the Franklin County Chapter, American Red Cross, is to give relief of human needs resulting from disasters (Public Law 4, 58th Congress, January 5, 1905).

The East Central College will authorize the Franklin County Chapter, American Red Cross, the usage of school buildings for disaster shelters and mass feeding when a disaster occurs.

The Franklin County Chapter, American Red Cross, will assume the following:

1. The cost of feeding and sheltering

2. The responsibility to identify the shelter

3. The responsibility to provide a staff to operate the shelter

The Franklin County Chapter, American Red Cross, agrees to protect, hold harmless, and indemnify the East Central College only against legal liability in respect to bodily injury, death, and property damage arising from the negligence of the Red Cross in connection with their use of the facilities.

The East Central College agrees that, after meeting its responsibilities to pupils, it will permit, to the extent of its ability and upon request by the Red Cross, the use of public school facilities by the Red Cross as mass shelters immediately after a disaster has struck or in advance of a potential disaster or as part of a drill or exercise.
