Storm Shelter Registration

NFD - Shelter

Add your storm shelter or safe room to the City of Norman Storm Shelter Registry!

Use the Online Registration Form or call the Fire Department Administration Office at 405-292-9780.


The City of Norman Storm Shelter Registry is a program initiated by the City of Norman Emergency Management. The purpose of the Storm Shelter Registry is to provide a database of storm shelter locations in Norman 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 Geographic 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 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.


The City of Norman encourages anyone with a safe room or storm shelter to register by calling the Fire Department Administration Office at 405-292-9780 or use the online registration form to submit your shelter information. Please be prepared to provide a name, phone number, email, shelter address, shelter location (i.e. back yard, front yard, garage, etc...), and shelter type (safe room, in-ground, basement). You can register a safe room, storm cellar, in-ground storm shelters, or basements.


Your storm shelter information will not be shared or distributed for any reason other than to aid City of Norman emergency responders.
