The purpose of the Storm Shelter Registry is to provide a database of storm shelter locations in Williamson County to assist emergency agencies in providing aid to victims of disasters. The registry will be a valuable tool for agencies in locating and assisting residents that may have been trapped in their storm shelters by debris.
The registry consists of a list of storm shelters and valuable information for each shelter such as contact information, shelter address, shelter type, and where on the property the shelter is located. The Williamson County Information Systems Department will maintain the database and the shelter addresses will be used to map all storm shelter locations. In the event of a disaster, address lists and address maps of affected areas can be distributed to emergency responders so that those in need of assistance can be quickly located.
How to Participate
Public safety officials across the county encourage anyone with a storm shelter to register online or by calling the Williamson County Emergency Management Agency at (615) 790-5752 to submit your shelter information. Please be prepared to provide a name, phone number, shelter address, shelter type (safe room, prefabricated, custom) shelter location (i.e., below or above grade), and shelter entry location. You can register a safe room, storm cellar, or in-ground storm shelter.
Your storm shelter information will not be shared or distributed for any reason other than to aid Williamson County Public Safety personnel.
