Storm Shelter/Safe Room registry

April 3, 2017



Homes with storm shelters or safe rooms provide an added measure of protection.  However, tornadoes and severe thunderstorms can leave debris on top of shelters, hiding them and those inside from emergency responders. Emergency personnel also benefit from knowing if a property has a safe room that protects against attack or intrusion. For these reasons, University Park has created a registry to aid in locating and assisting residents who may be trapped or are hiding inside.

This registry will provide the City’s fire, police and 911 call center personnel with valuable information for each shelter or safe room including contact information, shelter address, and shelter type. It also allows emergency personnel to map these locations, so that in the event of an emergency, those in need of assistance can be quickly located, even when communications are down.

How to Participate/Register        
                              
Registration can be completed online by going HERE.  During the sign-up process, please provide your name, phone number, email, shelter address, and shelter type (specifically whether it is a storm shelter, safe room, or basement).
