Tornado Shelter FAQ
Q) Are your saferooms certified by FEMA?
A) Federal Law prohibits FEMA from certifying any product. Some competitors might claim to be certified by FEMA but those claims are misleading. Any contractors, individuals, or firms who state they are “FEMA approved” or “FEMA certified” are incorrect. Read more about FEMA’s stance on their website.
FEMA does provide criteria for ensuring the safety and reliability of tornado shelters. Family SAFE meets or exceeds all of FEMAs provided criteria in our tornado shelters.
Our tornado shelters are tested to withstand EF5 level winds at Texas Tech University and meet or exceed the criteria in FEMA P-320 (FEMA, 2008a) and FEMA P-361 (FEMA, 2008b) .
Q) Is an above ground storm shelter safe? Will it work?
A) Our above ground tornado shelters are designed to meet or exceed the criteria in FEMA P-320 (FEMA, 2008a) and FEMA P-361 (FEMA, 2008b). Our tornado shelters will offer the same near-absolute protection as an in-ground tornado shelter and have protected numerous families from EF5 tornadoes.
