Tyrone Emergency Shelter
Emergencies are not something anyone likes to think about, but they can happen at any time. Emergencies can happen anywhere; home, school, work, and even during recreational activities. Emergencies can be natural or man-made. Although we may not know when a disaster will strike or a crisis occur, the more prepared and aware people are the better they will be able to cope and ease anxiety.
Not all public shelters are automatically activated for each emergency. They are opened as needed and are not pre-assigned by geographic area. During an emergency please monitor local television and radio stations for open shelter information.
Tyrone Area School District Campus is designated to serve as the Tyrone Area Emergency Shelter.
Where to go:
1001 Clay Avenue, Tyrone, PA 16686
Where to enter:
High School Gym Lobby and overflow will continue to the Elementary School through the main doors.
Up to 5000 people can be housed in the campus facilities with electricity, natural gas, water, food and appropriate personnel.
