In purchasing a safe room please consider these questions and/or items:
1. Is the company reputable?
2. Has the storm shelter met FEMA’s P-320 and P-361 standards? (standards that ensure design, construction, and structure integrity that will withstand the worst of storms and the debris)
3. We recommend purchasing a storm shelter that does not have welded corners holding the shelter together. The integrity of the shelter is dependent on the welds holding, if a piece of debris knocks a weld loose then the whole shelter is compromised.
The strength in our safe room is in the internal frame, which the rest of the safe room is built around. This frame and rounded/molded corners provide superior strength than a safe room that has its corners welded together.
Tornado Watch. This means that weather conditions are favorable for the development of severe storms which can produce a possible tornado in and close to the watch area. If you are in or close to the watch area stay informed of the latest weather conditions. Make sure that your safe room is accessible to all members of your family. Dress for safety.
Tornado Warning. A tornado warning means a tornado has been spotted or indicated by radar. If you are in or close to the watch area, take immediate action and seek shelter.
For schools, hospitals and shopping centers go to the designated shelter area. Interior room on the lowest floor. Stay away from large open building. Avoid all open or glass windows.
**Note: These items should be stored in your Southern Safe Room.**
