Storm Shelters

The Saferooms open when Calhoun County goes under a Tornado Watch or during a high impact event when necessary 

We do recommend that you take precautions to protect yourselves and to minimize close contact with others:

1. Wear your own face covering/mask and gloves inside the saferoom

2. Stay in your vehicle during the Tornado Watch, and move inside the Saferoom during a Tornado warning.
