  • Case Study – Stand-Alone Community Safe Room: North Carolina

    Go to Resource

    This project was located in a hurricane region and was designed as a combined hazard safe room for tornadoes and hurricanes because tornadoes often spawn from hurricanes. This design example was used in the 2000 release of FEMA P-361, therefore the calculations were based on guidance from ASCE 7-98 and Chapter 3 of FEMA P-361. These were checked for the 2008 release of FEMA P-361 against ASCE 7-05 and were determined to yield the same wind load values. Since then, ASCE 7-10 has been released; however, these calculations were not checked against the ASCE 7-10 update.

  • Case Study – School Community Safe Room: Wichita, Kansas

    Go to Resource

    This school was hit during the May 1999 Midwest tornadoes, and the rebuilding included the addition of a safe room. This design example was used in the 2000 release of FEMA P-361, therefore the calculations were based on guidance from ASCE 7-98 and Chapter 3 of FEMA P-361. These were checked for the 2008 release of FEMA P-361 against ASCE 7-05 and were determined to yield the same wind load values. Since then, ASCE 7-10 has been released; however, these calculations were not checked against the ASCE 7-10 update.

    This new masonry middle school classroom wing was designed to meet or exceed the design criteria set forth in the 2008 Editions of ICC 500 and FEMA P-361. The calculations shown in this case study have been updated to reflect the recent release of FEMA P-361 (2015) and ICC 500 (2014) and their referenced standard ASCE 7-10.

  • Community Safe Room Sample Operations and Maintenance Plan - Joplin Schools

    Go to Resource

    This multi-use safe room Operations and Maintenance (O&M) plan is an example of the procedures followed for a community safe room (CSR) located within a school that is also intended to be open to the public. The purpose of providing examples is to provide a starting point to help communities identify issues requiring careful consideration and planning so they can find appropriate solutions tailored to their specific needs. It would not be appropriate to provide a one-size-fits-all set of criteria for operating and maintaining safe rooms everywhere in the United States. For example, urban, suburban, and rural areas typically have different modes of transportation, communication, and local resources, all of which would be considered specifically when preparing an effective O&M plan. Please note that safe rooms constructed with FEMA grant funds must meet the minimum requirements for O&M plans as described in the most current edition of FEMA’s Hazard Mitigation Assistance (HMA) Unified Guidance. The FEMA HMA Unified Guidance is updated periodically. To review or download the most current HMA Unified Guidance, refer to:  https://www.fema.gov/hazard-mitigation-assistance.

  • Draper Water Treatment Plant Emergency Electrical Power Generation System Project, Cleveland County, Oklahoma PDMC-PJ-06-OK-2014-002, March 2015

    Go to Resource

    Draper Water Treatment Plant Emergency Electrical Power Generation System Project, Cleveland County, Oklahoma PDMC-PJ-06-OK-2014-002, March 2015///In order to strengthen the ability to provide potable drinking water to its citizens, the City of Oklahoma City (City) recently upgraded the Draper Water Treatment Plant (WTP). The improvements included a new 80 million gallons per day (mgd) high service pump station and suction flume improvements. After the completion of these upgrades, it was recommended that the Draper WTP strengthen its electrical and mechanical systems. By providing redundancy in the electrical generation system, the City will be able to provide clean potable water in the event of a disaster and power loss. This Environmental Assessment (EA) addresses the development of a fixed, enclosed generator facility that will protect the electrical upgrades. The Generator Facility will house a bi-fuel (natural gas/diesel) power generation system consisting of three 2,500 Kilowatt (kW) generators along with paralleling gear and automatic switching equipment. Fixed diesel storage tanks will be installed along the south exterior of the Generator Facility. The generators will enable operation of the Draper WTP at 67 percent of its capacity (100 mgd). Additionally, the Generator Facility has been sized to incorporate a fourth fixed, bi-Fuel (natural gas/diesel) power generator to enable operation of the Draper WTP at 100 percent of its capacity (150 mgd)./This EA has been prepared to analyze the potential consequences to the natural and human environment associated with the Proposed Action, the No Action Alternative, and other potential alternatives per the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) (42 United States Code [USC] 55 parts 4321 et seq., 2000), the President’s Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) implementing regulations (40 Code of Federal Regulations [CFR] 30 parts 1500 et seq., 2004), and 44 CFR Emergency Management and Assistance Ch.

    New Orleans Sewerage and Water Board Facilities and Carrollton Water Treatment Plant Hazard Mitigation Proposals Orleans Parish, Louisiana HMGP Multiple Projects FEMA-1603-DR-LA March 2015///Hurricane Katrina, a Category 4 hurricane with a storm surge above normal high tide levels, moved across the Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama gulf coasts on August 29, 2005. Maximum sustained winds at landfall were estimated at 140 miles per hour (mph). President George W. Bush signed a disaster declaration (FEMA-1603-DR-LA) for the state of Louisiana on August 29, 2005, authorizing the Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to provide federal assistance in designated areas of Louisiana. FEMA is administering this disaster assistance pursuant to the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act (Stafford Act), PL 93-288, as amended. Section 404 of the Stafford Act authorizes FEMA’s Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) to provide funds to states and local governments to implement long-term hazard mitigation measures after a major disaster declaration. Section 406 of the Stafford Act authorizes FEMA’s Public Assistance (PA) Program to repair, restore, and replace state and local government and certain private nonprofit facilities damaged as a result of the declared event./This Draft PA has been prepared to analyze the potential consequences to the natural and human environment associated with the Proposed Action, the No Action Alternative, and other potential alternatives per the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) (42 United States Code [USC] 55 parts 4321 et seq., 2000), the President’s Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) implementing regulations (40 Code of Federal Regulations [CFR] 30 parts 1500 et seq., 2004), and 44 CFR Emergency Management and Assistance Ch. I Part 10.
