|Residents should arrange for alternate storm shelter|
The schools will no longer be opened up as storm shelters. Citizens of Grant are urged to plan ahead to take cover at another location.

The Grant Volunteer Fire Department wishes to remind residents they should take cover when severe whether strikes, however, due to lack of manpower, local shelters at the grade school and high school will not be accessible.
For those who do not have a basement in their home, the department suggests arranging to go to a neighbor, an unlocked church, or city hall.
When steady sirens are activated, it means there is potential for a tornado to touch down within the city limits.
Residents are strongly urged to take cover immediately upon hearing the steady siren and to not leave the shelter area until the storm has passed.
Fire Chief Don Softley said residents should pay attention to the sights and sounds around them and use common sense in the decision to emerge from a shelter.
