Safe Rooms as Wedding Gifts
Safe room donations have become a popular wedding gift for couples residing in Tornado Alley. Many Midwestern engaged couples are foregoing crock-pots and blenders for a more practical gift- one that could potentially save their life. The sale of storm safe rooms has risen significantly in light of recent tornado damage in the South and Midwest. Tornadoes have been reported more and more frequently throughout the past few years. They have also grown in size and intensity, which is exhibited by the damage they leave behind. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is also partly responsible for the sudden increase in safe room sales. They have given grants to certain states to ensure the economic availability of these safe rooms. In some areas, safe rooms are legally required as per regulatory standards. Some 60 people are killed by tornadoes every year in the U.S. Storm safe rooms have proven to be lifesaving in many cases. That is why Midwestern newlyweds opt for donations as wedding gifts so they can afford to have them.
