Did you know there is a rebate program for installation of a storm shelter in your home?
Oklahoma has a little known, Safe Room Rebate Program called Sooner Safe. The Oklahoma Department of Emergency Management holds the yearly lottery for Oklahoma citizens. The lottery is a random selection process to select names for a maximum rebate of $2,000 for the installation of a safe room (aka storm shelter). Safe rooms, as outlined in the rebate program, is any above or below ground shelter that exceeds FEMA 320 guidelines. And while the selection is a random drawing, homeowners who have lost their homes during previous tornados will be listed as high priority.
There are guidelines for the rebate, and OKC Shelters builds a complete line of storm shelters to satisfy these guidelines. From underground garage shelters and concrete safe rooms to above ground steel safe rooms, we offer products and services that are taking storm safety and protection into the future. Our below ground shelters are available in four sizes with a sloped front or flat top to fit a variety of spaces.
Storm shelters have been proven to save lives. Studies show that a storm shelter can survive winds as high as 250 miles per hour (Source: FEMA Publication 320).
So, don’t wait until tornado season is here to protect your loved ones with an in-ground or above-ground storm shelter.
