The City of Graham Storm Shelter Registry is a program initiated by the City of Graham Emergency Management, Graham Fire Rescue, and the Young County Sheriff’s Department. The purpose of the Storm Shelter Registry is to provide a database of storm shelter locations in and around Graham to assist emergency agencies in providing aid to victims of severe weather. The registry will be a valuable tool for emergency agencies in locating and assisting residents that may have been trapped in their storm shelters by tornado 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 Graham Emergency Management department will maintain the database and the shelter addresses will be used to map all storm shelter locations. In the event of a natural 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.
