Introduction to Safe Rooms for Contractors (CILB# 0613077) (1 credit hours)
According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) website, a safe room is a hardened structure specifically designed to meet FEMA criteria and provide near-absolute protection in extreme weather events, including tornadoes and hurricanes. This course is based on FEMA publication P-320 and presents information on wind hazards, planning and building a safe room.  The course also provides FEMA safe-room design drawings.  These plans were developed primarily for use in new homes and small businesses, but some can be used in existing buildings.
