LITTLE ROCK, Ark. —
Shelia McGhee, director of the Faulkner County Office of Emergency Management, said that her office has never compiled a shelter list.
“That is something that I’m looking at and would like to gather this information,” she said, adding that she already has been looking at computer software that would help with this process, but said she doesn’t know when the county can buy it.
In the meantime, McGhee encourages residents to call her office, which will make a note of shelter locations in its database.
“Our emergency responders are trained to look for tornado shelters,” she said, but it’s good to have such information beforehand.
