Tornado Shelter Registration

Fort Worth’s Tornado Shelter Registration Program is free and voluntary. It allows residents who own a personal, severe weather shelter in Fort Worth city limits to register their shelter with the city.

Registering your shelter allows the Fort Worth Emergency Operations Center to provide information to first responders during Emergency/Disaster responses. This information gives rescue personnel valuable shelter locations and is critical should a tornado shelter exit be blocked by debris or structural damage caused by severe weather or other related incidents.

Shelter owners should also include out-of-town accountability contacts as part of your emergency plan. This provides an additional safeguard against being trapped in a shelter.

Always call 911 when someone needs help right away because on an injury or an immediate danger.

You only need to register your shelter once.

Register your shelter.
