DELAWARE, OH (WCMH)– More keys to the tornado shelter at Delaware State Park will be handed out, among other things, to prevent another failure that left dozens of people outside during a tornado warning Saturday night.
The Ohio Department of Natural Resources’ contractor 2K General, who operates the shelter, says they are confident a resolution has been implemented to ensure the system will work properly going forward.
They send the letter below to the ODNR Tuesday:
ODNR also said to ensure no repeat of the incident, park staff will implement additional back-up procedures:
- Keys will be issued to a number of permanent employees and personnel in the park.
- Park staff will be present during the Wednesday tornado siren test(s) to ensure the doors continue to operate correctly.
