Bullet-proof storm shelters could be coming to schools near you
HARRISON, M.O. – A new bulletproof storm shelter could soon be in schools across the country.
A team of engineers in Missouri said the tragedies in Moore, Oklahoma, and Sandy Hook shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, inspired them to developed this unique safe spot for students.
Their shelter withstood rounds from an AK-47 and wooden boards blasted at EF-5 tornado speeds.
The Hideaway Shelter bolts to the floor and expands to a space large enough for 30 students.
They don’t come cheap; the price starts at about $15,000.
The designers said they hope FEMA will help schools pay for the refuge.
