It is important to register your storm shelter with your local fire department. Many fire departments keep a map of all the storm shelters located in their district to aid in rescue after a disaster. It is especially important if you have a below ground tornado shelter, as there is always the possibility of being buried in rubble.

After a big tornado, many times neighborhoods are left in heaps, and it can be difficult to tell where anything is anymore. Your Family SAFE Storm Shelter will provide you with protection from the storm, but you will likely need help in the aftermath. Contact your local fire department today to see if they have a storm shelter registry and have yours added. Many search and rescue operations start with these locations, so it is important to have yours listed so you can get the help you need when you need it.
