Midwest City residents who have a storm shelter on their property are asked to register the shelter by completing a form that is sent or delivered to the Community Development Department at City Hall.
Registering your storm shelter is for the purpose of safety. In the event of a tornado or other incident that might cause rubble to fall on the shelter door, keeping you from being able to evacuate the shelter, city emergency staff needs to know where your shelter is located on your property.
After an incident has passed and if homes are destroyed, the emergency staff from the City will go into each of the neighborhoods to look for residents that might be blocked from exiting their shelters. The registration form allows them to know where the shelter is located on your property.
Completing this form and returning it to the Community Development Department is about the safety of you and your family in the event of a tornado.
Please view the Storm Shelter Registration Form (PDF). After your shelter has been permitted and installed, complete it and return to the Community Development Department by mailing, faxing or taking the form in the department.
