Homes will have

storm shelters

First Oklahoma Construction owner Ali Farzaneh is working with local contractors to install free underground storm shelters with each new custom home contract beginning this August.

“We want our customers to feel safe in their homes,” said Farzaneh. “After the May tornadoes, I felt that I could do more as a homebuilder. Providing storm shelters for members of the community will help them feel safe and prepared for future tornado seasons.”

First Oklahoma and local contractors are building the storm shelters inside these new homes and using materials strong enough to withstand high winds. Underground storm shelters located inside the house will provide customers with optimal security in the event of a tornado, as they will not have to go outdoors to seek shelter. The storm shelters will be built to meet FEMA guidelines and will include built-in steps and seating. For more information call 701-5557 or visit firstokconstruction.com.
