FEMA Emphasizing Safe Rooms and In-Ground Shelters for Arkansans

MAY 5, 2006 - Posted at 3:49 p.m. CST

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - Federal and state emergency officials are encouraging Arkansas residents to build reinforced safe rooms or in-ground shelters for protection against tornadoes and severe storms.

Arkansas homeowners who build a safe room or an in-ground shelter are eligible to receive a rebate of up to $1,000 or 50 percent of the cost, whichever is less.

But the emergency officials reminded Arkansans in a news release today to have construction plans approved by a local building inspector.
