FMSS capability provides assistance to

1) “populations requiring support,” i.e. individuals with physical, cognitive, sensory, emotional, or other conditions (e.g. advanced age) that impacts their level of functioning, or

2) individuals who have chronic medical or health conditions that require some medical support, but not at the level of care provided under the Medical Surge Capability. Such functional or medical support is provided to the extent possible to accommodate sheltering in a general population shelter. When necessary, support is provided in a FMSS.  To the extent possible under emergency conditions and within the capabilities of available resources, the FMSS is a location specifically established, staffed, and equipped to sustain the pre-disaster level of health, safety, and well-being of the individual.
