  • Tornado Safe Room Information

    FEMA Safe Room

    The Tornado Safe Rooms are owned by the Nixa 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 watch is issued, the public can begin to enter the safe room.  When a tornado warning is issued, the safe room will be fully open and operational for everyone.  Again, we will be using the NOAA weather radios as our official notification system. 

     

    Below is a link to a Special Needs Form (physical impairments, special medical alerts, aid animal instructions, etc. to be completed and returned to Nixa Public Schools FEMA, 301 S. Main St., Nixa, MO 65714).
