TULSA, Okla. - In a special committee Thursday afternoon, the Tulsa City Council began discussing the possibility of requiring safe rooms in all new school buildings.
FOX23 spoke with city councilors and parents who both referenced the Moore tornado as a reason why they want to see this happen.
"It was devastating. I wish they all could have gotten out," said Sandra Escoe.
Escoe said her daughter is one reason why she supports the discussion of putting safe rooms in schools.
"It'll keep everybody safe and they won't have to be guessing where to put the children when the storm comes," said Escoe.
The Tulsa City Council wants to look at requiring safe rooms for all new school buildings and possibly existing ones.
FOX23 spoke with City Councilor Karen Gilbert, who said there are many questions to consider.
"How many students would be able to fit into a safe room? How many safe rooms would we have to have? What would have to be done to development on school properties?" Gilbert asked.
Councilors are working to get school officials to voice their opinions about shelters in schools.
