What else should I do when having a shelter or safe room installed?

The City of Jenks has created a registry of storm shelters and safe rooms within Jenks. This registry will be used by Emergency Responders in search and rescue operations if the need arises. We consider it very important that all shelter owners register so that their shelter or safe room and occupants can be located if the shelter or safe room was to be obstructed by debris. View the registration form online (PDF) or may be obtained at the Jenks Police Department. Please fill out the form and return it to the Jenks Police Department as directed on the form.
