Paducah Fire Department Initiates Storm Shelter Registration Program

paducah fire2PADUCAH, Ky. (6/24/14) — The Paducah Fire Department is launching a storm shelter registration program.

It’s a free service for residents to provide information about their storm shelters to help first responders in case of an emergency.

The process is completely voluntary. Registration involves completing a registration form that provides contact information and details about the type and location of the storm shelter.

Deputy Chief of Fire Prevention Greg Cherry says, “In the case of a severe storm, tornado, or other natural disaster, damaged structures always will be searched. However, it may not be obvious to first responders that a storm shelter is on the property. This registry will be used as a tool by emergency personnel in locating the storm shelter and assisting residents who may be trapped inside by debris.”

The Storm Shelter Registration Form can be obtained from the Fire Prevention Division office at City Hall located at 300 South 5th Street or on the City’s website at www.paducahky.gov.

For additional information, contact the Fire Prevention Division at (270) 444-8522.
