2017 EMA SafeHaven ArticleThe goal of this pilot program is to reduce the numbers of injuries and deaths from tornados by providing a place to “ride out the storm” for people without adequate shelter. The program focuses on residents who live in mobile homes, but Safe Haven locations will serve anyone who needs shelter during a tornado watch.

The Safe Haven Program was made possible by a partnership between local churches, and:
Madison County Emergency Management Agency (EMA)
Madison County Health Department
KY Department of Public Health
American Red Cross
Madison County VolunteerOrganizations Active in Disaster (VOAD)
Madison County Medical Reserve Corps (MRC)

Safe Haven locations will serve anyone who needs shelter during a tornado watch or warning.
