There’s hot controversy in the state of Oklahoma this year, maybe more than any other, as school PTAs, students, teachers, and even some politicians are pushing for new legislation for mandatory school storm shelters throughout the state. Unfortunately, recent tax cuts have left these people standing in the dust–afraid of the next tornado season.
They wonder, “How many more children must die before school storm shelters are taken seriously?
With tornadoes as recent as the one that struck Moore, Oklahoma in 2013, which took out a couple of schools. The tornado caused 24 deaths and approximately 212 injuries. Its no wonder parents of school-age children are consumed. And since tornadoes are so unpredictable, schools are wanting a solution where they can protect the children at a moments notice.
Survive-a-Storm builds underground and above ground community safe rooms, which would be a simple and relatively inexpensive way for the leaders of the State of Oklahoma to provide school storm shelters all throughout their state. What is leaving parents puzzled is the seeming lack of concern from the government. The idea of leaving schools vulnerable instead of working to providing a solution seems incredulous. Especially when a company like Survive-a-Storm has the best solution available. on the market.
