SoonerSafe: Safe Room Rebate Program

The SoonerSafe - Safe Room Rebate Program was developed by the Oklahoma Department of Emergency Management to provide a rebate for purchase and installation of safe rooms for Oklahoma homeowners.

Oklahoma is providing this safe room rebate program through the FEMA Hazard Mitigation Grant Program. Therefore OEM must comply with all federal grant regulations for each rebate recipient, to include eligibility of properties, required documentation, etc. 

A maximum rebate of $2,000 is available per home, not to exceed 75 percent of the actual cost of the safe room.

Grant recipients request reimbursement after the safe room has been purchased and installed.

Storm Shelter Registries

If you have a storm shelter it is important to register with your local municipality. This will assist first responders to know where to look for survivors.

If your city or town is not listed here, contact City Hall or your local fire department to enquire about possible registries.
