Emergency Shelter Plan

In 2022, the City of Mason contacted us about putting together an emergency shelter plan for the residents. We met with city officials and area churches. As a result, we now have four local churches that have agreed to open their doors during periods of extreme heat, tornado warnings and extended power outages.  Notices with locations and hours open will be posted on our Facebook page, the city's and church's social media sites as well as on the city's website.
