Emory City Centre and FEMA Tornado Shelter


The FEMA Tornado Shelter serves as a shelter for our city in case of an emergency.  Should there be an emergency in the area, the shelter will be opened for immediate evacuation use.  We encourage all Rains County Citizens to make use of this shelter in case of an emergency. The Emory City Centre was built with a combination of funds from the City of Emory Development Corporation and a FEMA Grant.


If the US Weather Bureau issues a TORNADO WARNING for Rains County, the Emory City Centre will be unlocked and made available for the duration of the warning.  If you are at the Emory City Centre during an emergency warning and the building has not been unlocked, DIAL 911.  If units have not already been dispatched, the operator will give you instructions on how to enter the building.



You may register online for emergency "Smart911" calls, click here:


​The Emory City Centre is also used for civic events and can be rented to the public.  If you are interested in renting the facility, please click on the link below for rental information, then call our office to reserve your date.
