Safe room resources CD now available

from IAEM

Now available from FEMA’s Building Science Branch is FEMA P-388-CD, "Safe Room Resources (2015)." The materials on the CD are intended to help communities mitigate damage or loss from tornadoes and other extreme-wind events, and provide public information resources for conveying the importance of safe room construction. This is part of FEMA’s ongoing mitigation effort to lessen the impact that disasters have on people and property. The CD contains several informative posters, maps, and other resources that can be downloaded in various formats, including high-resolution print quality and low-resolution screen quality for web use. FEMA grant programs have provided approximately $985 million in federal funds towards the design and construction of nearly 25,000 residential and 2,000 community safe rooms in 25 states, tribes, and territories. This investment aligns with FEMA's strategic goal to support disaster resilience and the ability of our local communities to withstand and recover rapidly from disasters. All safe rooms constructed with FEMA grant funds must adhere to the FEMA recommended criteria described in FEMA P-361, "Safe Rooms for Tornadoes and Hurricanes: Guidance for Community and Residential Safe Rooms," and the requirements as described in the most current edition of FEMA's Hazard Mitigation Assistance (HMA) Unified Guidance. more
