Valuable information on the database such as shelter address, shelter type and shelter location on the property can help emergency agencies locate and assist residents who may have become trapped inside their shelters due to falling debris, structure collapse or other emergency situations.
The Storm Shelter Registration program was launched in June 2013.
To register, citizens can go to the City’s website, www.abilenetx.com and look under "I Want To…" then click on "Register My Storm Shelter."
Citizens can also register by visiting the Taylor County website, www.taylorcountytexas.org and look under "Government Offices," "Emergency Mgmt. & Environmental Enforcement," then click on "Storm Shelter Registration."
Those who need assistance completing the form may contact 211Texas by dialing 2-1-1 or 325-673-8211 between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.
