Colbert County Community Storm Shelters

As part of Colbert County's commitment to being 'Storm Ready' and with the aid of FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) grants, the Colbert County Commission has erected Community Storm Shelters in twenty-two locations throughout Colbert County with additional shelters being planned. Built of reinforced concrete or steel, these shelters are designed to provide our citizens with safe harbor during severe weather conditions in the County.

These shelters are available to the citizens of Colbert County and our visitors when severe weather situations threaten. The shelters will remain open until the threat of severe weather has past; or at least for the duration of the "Warning".
