A SAFE ROOM is a shelter that is strong enough to provide safety from catastrophic events such as wars or storms.
The illustration on this page shows a model safe room by Gaffco, a company that manufactures bullet-resistant systems. With prices starting at $50,000, Gaffco safe rooms are designed to provide protection during terrorist attacks.
A safe room does not have to be large or costly. The US Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) recommends creating a simple but sturdy storm shelter in the basement or firmly anchored to a concrete foundation. The walls and doors should be strong enough to withstand forceful wind and flying debris.
