Storm Shelter Information

Greenwood Police would like you to take a moment to look over the safe rooms rules. Safe rooms are located at the storm shelters in Greenwood.

Chief Will Dawson says, “The rules are in place to insure the safety and comfort level of all those that utilize the facilities. Officers and school officials will enforce the rules for those reasons.” Tornado season generally runs from March to May and is already upon us. Lt. Brad Hobbs stated, “Please take time to know the rules prior to an emergency. The goal is for everyone to be safe.”

Things to Remember
  • Safe Room doors automatically unlock when the tornado siren sounds.
  • The Safe Room is open to the public when a tornado warning has been issued and/or the tornado sirens have sounded.
  • The Safe Room will remain open until the tornado warning is lifted. When the warning expires, it will be evacuated and closed.
  • An appointed Safe Room Manager will be on duty to maintain the facility and to close it after the tornado warning expires.
  • Pets are permitted in the Safe Room in approved airline carriers only.
  • Students and school staff have priority occupancy of the Safe Room during school hours.
  • Smoking or tobacco in any form is prohibited in Safe Rooms and on all school property in accordance with Arkansas law.
  • Radios or music devices may be used only with individual earphones.
