FEMA Shelter Information


    The FEMA Shelters are owned by the West Plains School District and its first function is to provide protection for the students and staff during tornado and extreme high wind events during school hours.

    Your official notification that the safe room is open will be through your NOAA weather radio.  When a tornado warning is issued, the public can begin to enter the safe room.   During times of extended tornado watches, the shelters will open when weather spotters are sent out (approximately one hour before weather is scheduled to arrive).

    To access the South Fork Elementary FEMA Shelter, individuals must use the FEMA Shelter entrance located on the rear side of the building. 

    If you have any questions, contact Dr. Boyer, Assistant Superintendent, at 417-256-6150 or luke.boyer@zizzers.org.
