It is important for someone to know how to find you if a major storm hits your neighborhood. Most landmarks and signs are gone so it is very confusing to navigate areas that are very familiar to you. With every shelter installation we provide a detailed map indicating your GPS coordinates as well as the location of the shelter on your property. These maps should be given to the county EMA, local fire department, and to a friend or family member that lives more than 2 miles from you. It is also beneficial to keep a copy in your shelter in the event that you cannot get out of the shelter. Concrete does not typically impede cellular signals like steel does so you could call for help!
