In Decatur County - The Distribution Center at Bainbridge Southwest Regional Technical College will be open Tuesday at 8:00 AM. Water, ice, tarps and MRE’s available.

Also in Baker County specifically, Sherry Bailey, the Baker County EMA Director/ County manager said: “The 3119 SW Ga, HWY 91 distribution location will move to the Baker County School site (260 SW GA. Hwy 37). We have bottled water, ice, MRFs, and we have been promised a second shipment of TARPS."

The site will open approximately 9:00 a.m. and remain open until 5:00 p.m. One ice truck remains at Patmos Fire Station, but Tuesday will most likely be the last day at that sight.

The remote site out in the county will remain open Tuesday until 12, or when the supply is gone. Once the supply is gone, check the site at Baker County School.
