Sweetwater Christian School is home to one of the few school storm shelters in the Big Country.

The room can fit about 50 people in it and is made out of two sheets of steel. The walls are 12 inches thick and it has two steel framed doors.

A closet is also located in the room that is filled with emergency supplies, from water to flashlights.

The safe room was constructed in 2010 when they built the new school building. Faculty and students preform drills atleast three times a year in order to stay aware.
