Storm Shelters
During tornadoes and severe weather, the City of Derby encourages residents to shelter in place if possible. Residents are advised to create a storm plan and follow the plan in the event of severe weather.

Part of the storm plan should include evacuation planning, which involves gathering things such as medications, insurance documents, clothing, bedding, bottled water and non-perishable food before the need to evacuate arises. Residents also need to consider plans for pets, and bring food and a travel kennel.

If residents decide to take shelter at an alternate location, there are two public storm safe rooms in the city.

Fire Station #82
1401 N. Rock Rd.
  • Doors are open during tornado warnings.
  • Storm safe room in the basement.
  • Park north of the fire station and enter the east door upstairs. There is a handicap accessible entrance downstairs on the west side.
  • Animals are allowed at this location and crates are available for use.

1335 N. Buckner

  • Residents should enter the church on the south side.
  • Animals are not allowed at this location.
