Register your storm shelter

Post Date:05/01/2020 11:30 a.m.

The City of Broken Arrow maintains a database of storm shelters and safe rooms to assist emergency responders after a storm. This is a free service. If you have such a facility and have not yet registered it with the City, please take time to do so. An online form is located at BrokenArrowOK.gov/StormShelter or call 918-451-8309.

A reinforced underground storm shelter, storm cellar, enclosed basement or safe room is usually the safest place to go during a tornado. 

If you cannot get underground, remember the basic guidelines. Put as many walls between you and the outside as you can, and stay away from doors, windows and other openings to the outside. If you are outdoors and a tornado is heading your way, do not seek shelter under a bridge or overpass. Emergency officials say it is safer to lie flat in a low spot, as far from the road as  possible.
