Storm Shelter Registration


Registering the location of your storm shelter at your business or residence will provide emergency personnel with vital information in the event your shelter is blocked by debris following a storm.  Once registered, the exact GPS location of you shelter will be entered into the city's emergency dispatch system, and city personnel will install a small green reflector at the end of you driveway, indicating the location of a storm shelter.

To register your shelter with the city, email the following information to Fire Chief Steve Sims - ssims@bellavistaar.gov.
