FEMA 320 and ICC-500 stipulates that at least 5 square feet of floor area per person will be big enough for a tornado  safe room (Wheel chair and bedridden occupants require more space). Although more people can fit inside the rooms  than what is suggested, we strongly recommend purchasing a Safe-Room model that meets your family occupancy  requirement.
