We're focused on helping families stay safe during storms and tornadoes because our family has been impacted by tornadoes. We live and work in areas that suffer from major storms and tornadoes, and four generations of our family have been involved in the storm shelter business. We've been installing safe rooms in the Little Rock area for years, which means that our installers have the experience and knowledge of the area that you expect!
After you have received a rebate letter from your local planning commission you can then reach out to Ground Zero Storm Shelters to install your shelter.
If you have qualified for a rebate, order your shelter from Ground Zero today! You can also call us at 877-880-1351.
If you own or are in the process of buying a home, don't live in a flood plain, and your home is not a historical site, then you can qualify for a rebate on your property.
Have more questions? Contact us, or call us at 877-880-1351 and we can help you in this process.
If you are in need of a storm shelter and budget is an issue, don’t give up! You may qualify for financial aid in the form of rebates, grants, Native American assistance or even FEMA funding. Take a look at your options below to find out if you qualify!
In Oklahoma everyone can go online and apply for the SoonerSafe Safe Room Rebate Program that draws twice a year (minimum) like a lottery all over Oklahoma for help getting tornado shelters. In disaster years they have been known to draw more than twice in one calendar year. Remember, you only get picked if you apply! There are no guarantees that you will get picked. Some have waited 5 years to get drawn and others have never been drawn.
Most Oklahoma based tribes do offer assistance for storm shelters to be installed for their tribal members who are homeowners. If you are a member, you should contact the housing authority for your tribe and ask about storm shelter assistance.
You will then fill out a form with your information and wait until further notice if you have been accepted and the steps to follow thereafter, as well as your budget.
No matter where you live you can go to the www.FEMA.gov website and apply for assistance. Also if you live in an area prone to bad weather you can keep in touch with your city offices or local Emergency Management and they will advise you if they have any local, city or state funding for storm shelter assistance or if they know of any in the near future.
When a tornado strikes your community emotions run high and it’s hard to maintain a sense of normalcy after a disaster like this.

Before you start beating yourself up, it is totally natural for you to ask if something could have been done to protect your home.

Your family may not be together when a tornado strikes so it is very important to plan in advance:
For an easy plan of action you can download communication plans for both parents and kids on FEMA’s website.
We also recommend inquiring about emergency plans at places where your family spends time like work, daycare, school, church, sports events and commuting. If no plans exist, consider volunteering to help create one. Talk to community leaders, your colleagues, neighbors and members of faith or civic organizations about how you can work together in the event of an emergency.
You will be better prepared to safely reunite your family and loved ones during a tornado if you think ahead and communicate with others in advance!
