Marion County Emergency Services has initiated a Severe Weather Shelter Registration Program. This free, voluntary program allows residents who own a personal severe weather shelter in Marion County to register their shelter with the Emergency Services. Shelter registration is part of our effort to be proactive in response to rescue situations that can occur as a result of severe weather.
This program will provide rescue personnel with valuable timesaving location information should a storm shelter exit be blocked by debris or structural damage caused by severe weather.
To register a storm cellar, safe room, or other personal severe weather shelter, contact at 221-1121, or register your storm shelter online. Information recorded will include the owner's name, location of the shelter, owner telephone contact number(s), and a brief description of the shelter type and specific location.
This information will be maintained by Emergency Services personnel and used ONLY in the event of structural damage from severe weather or other related incidents.
