In light of the tornadoes that hit Edmond last week, now seems like a good time to post a link to the Edmond Storm Shelter Registration Page. There, you’ll find a link to the online form for registering your storm shelter.
Many residents aren’t even aware this registry exists, but it’s in place to help emergency officials locate storm shelters that may be covered up or barricaded somehow after a severe storm wreaks havoc on your home.
It’s bad enough to have to spend time in a small shelter, but imagine being trapped in there with nobody even knowing to look for you there.
So, in addition to this registry, I also recommend getting to know your neighbors well and showing them where your shelter is. Hopefully, if a tornado hit your area, your friends and family would know where to look, but be extra safe and make sure your neighbors and the emergency officials know where to look for you also.
