After the devastating tornadoes in 1999 and 2003 Oklahoma initiated the first large-scale Safe Room Initiative in a partnership with the Federal Emergency Management Agency. This result in over 6000 safe rooms being constructed in Oklahoma that followed FEMA’s 320 Guidelines, which we also adhere to.
As reported by KFOR in Oklahoma City there are currently talks between the Oklahoma Department of Emergency Management and FEMA for a proposed storm shelter rebate program that would help homeowners offset the costs of a storm shelter.
However, they are unclear of the fate of this program. They’re only discussing it for now and nothing has been determined if a program will even come to fruition. We’ll keep our fingers and toes crossed in the meantime.
As of right now there are already programs setup in Midwest City, Yukon and Okfuskee County. We’ll be doing more research on these programs and will keep you updated here on the blog with what we find out.
