Shelter Registration Program Information
Edmond's Severe Weather Shelter Registration Program is a free and voluntary program that allows residents who own a personal severe weather shelter in the Edmond city limits to register their shelter with the City of Edmond. 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 shelter-location information. This information would be critical should a storm shelter exit be blocked by debris or structural damage caused by severe weather.
We have always encouraged shelters owners to include an out-of-town accountability contact as part of their personal severe weather plan. This program provides an additional safeguard against being trapped in a shelter.
Register a Shelter
To register a storm cellar, safe room, or other personal severe weather shelter, call (405) 359-4564, or register your storm shelter online with the Shelter Registration Form
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 Management personnel and used only in the event of structural damage from severe weather or other related incidents.
**Please note, all new shelter installations do require a permit from the Building Department.
