FEMA releases new and updated safe room fact sheets

from IAEM

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) recently announced the publication of updated and new fact sheets about tornado-safe rooms. The updated Residential Tornado Safe Room Doors fact sheet provides information regarding selecting an adequate safe room door assembly. The information reflects the changes made to the ICC/NSSA Standard for the Design and Construction of Storm Shelters (ICC® 500) from the first to second edition. A new fact sheet, Community Tornado Safe Room Doors: Installation and Maintenance, provides information about the selection, installation and maintenance of safe room door assemblies for community safe rooms. Safe room door assemblies are one of the most important components of a safe room because they must provide the same level of protection as the walls and roof yet also remain functional for quick access. Please direct any questions to FEMA’s Safe Room Helpline by calling 866-927-2104 or emailing Saferoom@fema.dhs.gov. more
