Rebuilding Henryville

Safe Rooms Save Lives: Federal Alliance for Safe Homes® and the National Storm Shelter Association Spread the Word at ‘Rebuilding Henryville’ and Donate Nine Safe Rooms to Indiana Tornado Victims Safe rooms valued at $70,000 are part of Habitat for Humanity rebuilding projects

(Louisville, KY, May 16, 2012) – In an effort to spread the word nationwide that “safe rooms save lives,” the Federal Alliance for Safe Homes (FLASH®) has teamed up with the

National Storm Shelter Association (NSSA) to attend the Rebuilding Henryville bene- fit concert, and to donate nine safe rooms to Habitat for Humanity for re- building projects in the Henryville, IN ar- ea.

The Rebuilding Henryville concert
held May 16, 2012, featured Grammy-
award winning country music group
Lady Antebellum and directly benefited Hen- ryville, Indiana which was affected by a devastat- ing EF-4 tornado in early March 2012.

“Our thanks go to Lady Antebellum for their ef- forts to raise funds toward Rebuilding Henryville and for graciously allowing FLASH and NSSA to educate their fans about the importance of torna- do safe rooms at the concert,” said Leslie Chap- man-Henderson, President and CEO of FLASH. “Also, we are extremely proud to partner with NSSA and Habitat for Humanity to distribute

life-saving safe rooms to tornado victims in the Hen- ryville area,” she added.

According to FLASH, a safe room can provide ultimate life safety protection from the dangerous forces of severe winds and tornadoes. Safe rooms that meet NSSA, International Code Council (ICC) and Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) standards are designed to withstand up to 250 mile-per-hour winds, and offer lifesaving refuge for families in the path of high-wind events like torna- does.

The donation of the safe rooms are in honor of Disaster Safety Week of the International Code Council Foundation® Building Safety Month. Dis- aster Safety Week is co-sponsored by FLASH and FEMA. Companies donating safe rooms include:

  • Norwalk Concrete Industries
  • The Perfect Storm Shelters, LLC
  • Safe Sheds, Inc.
  • Vaughn Concrete Products, Inc.
  • Wieser Concrete Products, Inc.

Wieser Concrete was proud to participate in the “Rebuilding Henryville” benefit. The Storm Shelter we donated was manufactured and installed by our Roxana, Illinois team.
