Burlington Community School District: FEMA Storm Shelter / Fitness Addition
The Burlington Community School District hired Klingner & Associates, P.C. to design a FEMA compliant Safe Room. This Safe Room is able to hold approximately 1,300 individuals during an emergency and includes storage for safety equipment along with a backup generator and restroom facilities.
The new Safe Room has multiple uses when not needed for emergency purposes. It serves as a wrestling room and a cardio workout area for the school district; inspiring their students through the multiple opportunities it provides.
This project was funded by State and Federal FEMA funding, and local Physical Plant and Equipment Levy (PPEL) funds.
