In the event a severe weather or tornado warning is issued for the immediate area, Site Security will notify the Purina Farms management team. The team will notify guests of an impending weather event via the property wide public address system and via the storm siren and announcements. Guests will be asked to seek cover in designated areas marked as severe weather shelter areas inside the Purina Farms facilities (those in the outdoor event areas should seek cover in one of the indoor facilities on the property). Areas at the Purina Event Center include the Gateway Hall, restrooms, South stairwell and the Great Hall if necessary. Areas at the Visitor Center include the bathrooms and indoor theater. After the weather event ends, Purina Farms management teams will announce all clear.
- If weather is extreme after-hours, then security will unlock the Purina Event Center to allow overnight guests to come into the building with dogs at any time. The service center is also open 24/7 for campers to seek shelter.
- Should the weather look threatening, Purina Farms Security will go around the RV lot to notify overnight guests to seek shelter. Security will also visit the outdoor event areas around the property to let guests know there is threat.
