PADUCAH, 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.”
