FEMA shelter now under construction in omaha, arkansas.

Dec 16, 2020

Construction is now underway on a new FEMA safe room for the Omaha School District. This 4,000 square foot facility will serve as a focal point on campus, house an indoor archery range with restrooms, and provide a safe area for the community of Omaha, Arkansas.

A community shelter or "safe room" is specifically designed and constructed to resist wind pressures and wind-borne debris impacts during an extreme wind event, like tornadoes and hurricanes, providing near-absolute protection for many members of the community when designed and constructed following FEMA criteria.

Construction on the Omaha FEMA safe room is scheduled to be completed in March.
