Greene County Extension will host “Taking Shelter from the Storm: Building a Safe Room in Your Home or Business,” at the Springfield-Greene County Botanical Center, 2400 S. Scenic, Springfield.
Jeff Barber, LEED AP architect and a housing and environmental design specialist with University of Missouri Extension, will lead the program.
Program information will focus on locating and constructing a safe room in a home or small business. A variety of approaches will be discussed during the program, focusing on several construction methods that are presented in the FEMA 320 document.
“The powerful destruction of recent spring storms in Joplin and Moore, Oklahoma are reminders of the dangers we face in tornado alley,” said Barber. “Knowing the risks and developing a solution that is appropriate for the homeowner or business is an important aspect of preparedness.”
Come learn about the variety of construction methods available for Homeowners and Small Businesses to build a Safe Room. Research based information and methods from Texas Tech University have been used to develop rooms with significant reliability.
