Are these shelters certified by FEMA?

FEMA Guidelines Publication 320 and Publication 361

Actually, the Federal Emergency Management Agency doesn't certify storm shelters.  The New Day shelters are known by third-party evaluation to be in compliance with the guidelines of FEMA, publication 320 and publication 361.

Can I get a FEMA rebate?

Rebates are sometimes available

If you are lucky enough to get one, know that these shelters are "Safe Room Qualified" and bear the NSSA Seal.  They are good for the rebates.  But don't let the chance of a rebate stop you from getting you what you want and need.

How do I know this shelter will be safe?

Forever there were no standards for storm cellars!  FEMA produced guidelines at the end of last century and finally, National Storm Shelter Association produced an actual Standard in the early 2000s.  International Code Council adopted the NSSA Standard and New Day is engineered in accordance with that Standard.

Are these guaranteed?


Except for paint and peripherals, this shelter is guaranteed to the Original Owner to be free from manufacturing defect for one million years.  I need to be clear about something, however.  Like the makers of helmets, flack jackets, steel-toed shoes and parachutes, we give no guarantee that you will be unhurt while in the process of using this product.  Surely we are all doing our level best to keep you safe and that is where our responsibility ends.
