GREENWOOD -- Greenwood is preparing for expected storms with a new voluntary registration form for storm shelters, implemented by the police department.

Chief Dawson says debris can block the exit of your shelter and you could get trapped inside,  the form helps to let police know where to look.

"This will allow us to get to those locations, know where they are at and get the people out quicker." Dawson explains.

Anyone wanting to register can call or visit the Greenwood Police Department.
