The report explores the feasibility of incorporating residential basements, as group shelters, in a local community shelter plan. Three alternative general objectives are delineated public facilities, specific arrangements, and family responsibility. Common to each of these objectives are four components instrumentality, efficiency, public acceptability, and maintenance. Three general methods are described for implementing any or all of these general objectives mail-survey, community volunteer, and comprehensive. These steps are cumulative in the order stated. The apparent feasibility of the objectives is discussed, along with conditions that will likely affect the success of any trial programs, and some test conditions to take into account. Some trial programs are illustrated in some detail. Author
