    OSAGE COUNTY, Okla. - Osage Hills Public School installed the first of 10 new school-safe shelters on Wednesday.

    The shelters are being installed by the Tulsa-based company SchoolSafe. The "shelter-in-place" concept provides certified EF-5 tornado protection, as well as a barrier from intruders, the company said. The panels are also level 2 bullet resistant.

    Each shelter is fully enclosed and can hold 15-20 people. 

    An 11x16 shelter will be installed in the school hallway to accommodate members of the community during a storm.

    A bond issue funded the $200,000 project.
