 This present invention generally relates to prior art in the field of construction of storm shelters or seismic activity shelters more commonly known as safe room construction. In particular this present safe room invention is relocateable and for indoor use only.
 The typical homes for people are usually site built wood framed homes, manufactured homes, apartments, or even recreational vehicles. These types of structures are built to withstand moderate to severe weather related conditions, and/or seismic activity. However, EF-5 tornadoes category 5 hurricanes and massive earthquakes pay no respect to our residential structural building standards and can completely destroy homes in seconds endangering the people who may be located inside those structures. Tornadoes verified to sustain wind speeds of above 300 mph can lift and toss automobiles as if they were toys. Indoor use shelters, considered by the inventor as, prior art in this particular field tends to focus on protection from wind speed and small flying debris but fail to address greater hazards such as; large flying debris. Recent studies have indicated that although nighttime tornadoes are less common than daytime tornadoes they pose a very disproportionate risk to human life. Only about 25% of tornadoes happen at night but nighttime tornadoes are responsible for almost 50% of U.S. tornado deaths. Significant risk factors to this disproportionate death include; during nighttime tornadoes people are more likely to be in their beds sleeping and are more likely to be in residential structures that are more susceptible to severe damage or total destruction. According to the Storm Prediction Center in Norman, Okla. "Tornado Safety" a person in danger of a tornado should "know where to take shelter in a matter of seconds", and "turn on" a "weather radio and stay alert for warnings." (cit. 1 npl) Also, FEMA states; "If you are under a tornado WARNING, seek shelter immediately!" in a "safe room". (cit. 2 npl) As such; there is an absolute need for adequate, easily available, and affordable shelter that allows a person to actually follow the advice of emergency managers, immediately!
 Earthquakes are another threat to property and human life. According to the National Earthquake Information Center, an estimated 750,000 people have died earthquake related deaths since the year 2000 (cit. 3 npl). Recently massive earthquakes have occurred; Japan, 2011 9.0 magnitude earthquake, Chile, 2010 8.8 magnitude earthquake, Haiti, 2010 nearly 230,000 people died in a single earthquake. Experts agree that the western U.S. is particularly vulnerable to catastrophic earthquakes amidst massive populations from San Diego, Calif. to Seattle, Wash. Also, scattered widely from San Diego, Calif. to Seattle, Wash. are millions of American renters in substandard buildings most of which are multi-story such as; the notorious "soft-story" apartments that are particularly vulnerable to collapse. FEMA states; "What to Do During an Earthquake"; "Minimize your movements to a few steps", "DROP to the ground; take COVER" under a sturdy "table" (cit.4 npl). With so many Americans at risk to catastrophic building collapse and only a sturdy table to rely on its time the American consumer had some options in a safe room. Thus, there is an absolute need for a lightweight crush cage reinforced safe room that specifically designed for renters with limited space, leases that forbid property changes, and challenging protection needs. This present invention is designed to meet those needs and more.
 Hurricanes are another formidable natural disaster that can cause widespread devastation and loss of life. Unlike tornadoes and earthquakes hurricanes are slow moving and quite predictable. In 1935 the infamous Labor Day Hurricane sustained wind speeds over 200 mph. Wind speed, causing flying debris, is the primary threat to human life during these events however problems associated with flying debris is no new concept and is addressed sufficiently with tornado protection. Although hurricanes are slow moving and predictable, people still either cannot or will not evacuate to a safe location. Recently Hurricane Katrina taught us that a 25 foot high storm tidal surge to the U.S. Gulf Coast is perhaps the most serious threat to human life that remains in the path of these furious storms. This present invention addresses the need for temporary emergency flood protection. FEMA advises to evacuate a hurricane impact area if directed by authorities and; "If you are unable to evacuate, go to your safe room.", and listen to a weather radio (cit. 5 npl). If you are in your "safe room" during a hurricane and exposed to a massive tidal surge, and your safe room offers no emergency flood protection. You may not be safe.
 Flooding is the most common type of disaster worldwide and accounts for approximately 40% of all natural disasters and yet safe rooms fail to address this. Deadly flooding develops from various conditions, and although the only true safety a person can have from flooding is to have enough advanced notice and move to higher ground. "Flash" flooding, by simple definition, can occur without warning; it can occur during severe thunderstorms under tornado warnings where people might be in a safe room. Tsunamis can be deadly flooding events that can follow powerful earthquakes and pose a serious risk to human life in coastal regions, such as the very populated western U.S. coastline, that may have already been devastated by the earthquake wherein people might be trapped in a safe room under debris. Therefore, it would be very advantageous for a safe room that offered the consumer an option that could allow them to stop the influx of water in an life or death emergency. Although oxygen would be in limited supply, if certain death was the only other option, even seconds could make the difference. Also a person could securely affix a medical oxygen, or even SCUBA equipment tank for additional supply inside the safe room depending on their individual risk and/or economic factors.
 According to the Louisiana Office of Emergency Preparedness; "Each year, fire kills more Americans than all natural disasters combined.", and at least 80% of all those deaths occur in residential structure fires (cit. 6 npl). With all of these deaths, and the statistical facts that residential structural fires are commonplace following earthquakes and tornadoes; this field of invention has widely ignored this need and left the consumer with little choice if he is a renter, in particular, as retrofitting your home with sprinklers is the accepted defense. The fact remains thousands of Americans are being trapped and killed by fire in their residences every year. Therefore, it would be very advantageous for a person to have even temporary heat barrier in a safe room wherein they could choose to stop the influx of deadly heat and smoke by closing the ventilation doors. Although, again this would limit your oxygen supply, if certain death is the only option it's pretty much a no brainer. According to the U.S. Fire Administration/National Fire Data Center states; "Regardless of region, season, or time of day, structure fire response times are generally less than 5 minutes (cit. 7 npl). Five minutes of protection should be obtainable if not expected in a "safe room."
 Briefly; other domestic threats exist such as; violent crime. Violent crime such as home invasion robberies are often deadly as it typically targets the person as well as the property. Most of these types of crimes happen late at night hoping to catch people asleep in bed. Thus, it would be very advantageous for a "safe room" to be bulletproof.
 U.S. Pat. No. 6,308,466 to Robert J. Moriarty; Moriarty does describe his invention as being able to be anchored or not, lightweight, indoor use, complete enclosure, easy to assemble or disassemble, and suitable for use in very limited living spaces. These are accurate statements describing Moriartys' safe room and obviously similar to aspects and applications of this present invention however, described below are a variety of vulnerabilities and specific limitations to conditions likely to occur that can endanger instead of protect a potential occupant of Moriartys "safe" room. Moriarty describes that "unnotched" polycarbonate is virtually unbreakable (clmn2; 25-26) also, that his shelter is "impenetrable by sharp objects" (clmn2; 29-30) also described by Moriarty are "air holes", or "peep holes" as being completely through the panels and door panel (clmn4; 29,3038,39) as can clearly be seen in FIG. 1 as what appear a perforated rectangular zone/shape created by a series of these air holes, or peep holes. First; the perforation lines of holes compromise the structural integrity of the panel causing it to lose it's virtually unbreakable characteristics, and secondly the hole themselves virtually eliminate the purpose of the panels ability to be impenetrable to sharp objects as they, being open air holes, or open peep holes could allow small sharp objects to freely enter the "safe room". Furthermore, Moriarty describes his safe room has "high heat deflection" (clmn4; 16). According to the Oklahoma State Department of health, injury prevention service article "Hot Facts about House Fires"; a residential house fire can reach over 1100 degrees in only 3.5 minutes (cit.8 npl). I am not sure exactly what Moriarty meant by "high heat" but, according to the MSDS sheet for Polycarbonate Thermoplastic Polymer Sheet (cit.9; npl) the melting point is 428 degrees f. The first reference to a hazard on the same said MSDS sheet under the 2. Hazards Identification Emergency Overview states; CAUTION! Melted product is flammable and produces intense heat and dense smoke during burning. A 428 degree melting point is considerably lower than that of a typical structural fire often common following tornadoes and earthquakes. Therefore, there is an absolute need for an versatile interior use safe room that can withstand temperatures above 450 degrees without asphyxiating its potential occupants with dense toxic smoke before melting around them, and or allowing them to be struck with debris through unprotected ventilation openings.
 U.S. Pat. No. 6,298,503 to Ching-Lung Hsu describes an bed assembly that is also an earthquake protective shelter. As this assembly is unrelated to wind and storm protection, and is a large heavy and difficult to move item they are largely unrelated. However, a basic mattress support surface design, earthquake protection, and an emergency electrical power source being common aspects for similar application are worthy of a discussion. Disassociative properties from this present invention as a mattress support design; Hsu describes an shelter as an integral part of large furniture with transverse steel plates, a traditional headboard and footboard, and even attached cabinets. Hsu design features defeat objectives of this current invention as such; the wooden parts would burn, it is not described as easy to move or assemble, and appears too large for the average consumer space saving needs. Disassociative properties from this present invention as earthquake protection; Hsu describes transverse and longitudinal steel plates. This present invention describes an interior tubular support cage (similar in design and intent to an automobile roll-cage) surrounded by layered panels and encased with an exterior linear edge frame. Only the term earthquake protection unite these two protective structures. Disassociative properties from this present invention from emergency power supply; Hsu describes emergency power supply as being "disposed" (clmn2; 65) in the shelter and FIG. 1 clearly shows the device as a stand alone lose object with no cooperation to another part or member to secure the device. These stand alone emergency power devices are primarily large storage batteries and even small compact units can weigh as much as 60 lbs. During the intense shaking of an extremely violent earthquake an item such as this heavy battery could begin bouncing around inside the "safe room" and cause an unsafe condition of its own that could seriously injure or cause death to a potential occupant. This current invention overcomes this serious disadvantage by permanently affixing the emergency power supply to the inside of the structure.
 U.S. Pat. No. 6,334,278 to Floyd C. Arnold. Arnold describes a shelter that is a panel and frame type of construction that is in rudimentary form similar with the present invention. However, Arnold has a common thread of resounding theme to his application that is a particular and inherent quality by design of this current invention and is worthy careful scrutiny as it appears Arnold, with choice words, is attempting to confine the easily assembled and relocateable concept within the scope of his patent. If, such choice words are true it warrants the attempt. Arnold states in the Abstract; "The entire structure can be easily assembled and disassembled with ease." Arnold states in the field paragraph that his invention is "able to be disassembled and relocated to different locations with ease." (clmn1; 5) Arnold states at the beginning of all twelve of his objectives that his objective is; "to provide an easily assembled and relocateable shelter" Arnold states his fifth objective is "to provide an easily assembled and relocateable shelter" that "can be packaged for low-bulk" and "convenient transport." (clmn2; 30,31) Arnold states his sixth objective is; "to provide an easily assembled and relocateable shelter" that, "can be assembled by inexperienced persons." (clmn2; 33-35) Arnold further states; during the description of the preferred embodiment, that "The cement slab 10 can be transported to a new site for reuse." (clmn6; 33,34) What Arnold fails to disclose is that his inventions member 10 (FIG. 1), the cement that he suggests you could easily transport would weigh in excess of 12,000 lbs. Another problem Arnold failed to mention is weight; part 40 weighs over 532 lbs alone, and the combined weight of Arnolds "easily" assembled, disassembled, low-bulk, conveniently transported, and relocateable by inexperienced people shelter as described in the preferred embodiment would weigh approximately 15,000 lbs. Another problem associated with Arnolds shelter is; exposed panel edges that could be dislodged with repeated or heavy impact. Another problem associated with Arnolds shelter is; it has no bottom panel. If struck with enough impact and knocked off its epoxy, or concrete set anchors it could expose potential occupants to flying debris and other deadly elements. Another problem associated with Arnolds shelter is the unprotected ventilation openings that could allow small deadly flying debris freely into the "safe room." Another problem associated with Arnolds shelter is; there is little or no application for renters given the weight and necessary property modifications. With current statistical data suggesting 100,000,000 Americans are renting we must adjust to the changing needs of the consumer. Also, America has an increasing number of single parent households many of which are renters that have little or any help when they need it. This present invention the (D.A.T.A.) Bedroom Basement safe room was designed with single person assembly and the renter as a forethought, thereby; the heaviest single part as described in the preferred embodiment form of the present invention is only 56 lbs and requires no property modifications.
 None of the prior art in this field describe an interior tubular crush support cage (similar to that of a roll cage in an automobile) that is adaptable to different protection levels with the addition of, or replacement of accessory frame members.
 None of the prior art in this field describes an exterior linear edge frame that covers and protects exterior panel edges and corner seams from impact and possible panel dislocation.
 None of the prior art in this field describes an interior tubular support cage that works in cooperation with an exterior angle frame to "sandwich" the primary panels of the safe room body; thereby, creating an unparalleled support network for maintaining panel integrity.
 None of the prior art in this field describe grille, or screen and hood protected ventilation openings to prevent dangerous debris from entering the said prior art.
 None of the prior art in this field describe an automatic emergency alert system radio securely affixed in the unit that will automatically sound an alarm to wake you if a warning is issued in your specific area and keep you aware of changing conditions.
 None of the prior art in this field describes a securely and structurally affixed emergency power supply to the interior of a safe room.
 None of the prior art in this field describe the ability, or possess the ability to adapt to different geologically determined disaster risks, or domestic threats should the owner move to a completely different risk zone.
 None of the prior art in this field describe optional accessories that can be fitted originally, or purchased and retrofitted after the original purchase, to increase your level of protection against a variety of serious threats.
 None of the prior art in this field describe the ability to be bulletproof, or the adaptability to become small arms bulletproof for protection against violent crimes such as home invasions.
 None of the prior art in this field describe an permanent or optional accessory heat barrier shield, or any form of protection from fire.
 None of the prior art in this field describes or possesses the ability to be broken down and packaged into retail sized and retail style cardboard packaging, or the specific intent to retail box package for retail outlet sales such as; a national home improvement chain or furniture store.
 None of the prior art in this field describes the ability to be fitted or retrofitted with special accessory seals and doors whereby the occupant of the safe room (in life or certain death situations) has the ability to close specially sealed doors over the ventilation openings to prevent the influx of life threatening elements such as; water, smoke, heat, or toxic fumes.
 The inventor present believes he has sufficiently identified the problems and limitations associated with the known prior art in this field, and sufficiently described how this present invention overcomes those problems and limitations.
SUMMARY OF INVENTION
 An indoor use safe room that is adaptable to different geographically determined natural disaster risks, and or domestic violence threats through the original fitting or later retrofitting of specific accessories. Also, specifically targeted risk accessories of heat shield fabrics, and bulletproof fabrics are extremely lightweight and thin, the consumer could easily purchase several layers of each fabric if they wished and make a virtually indestructible and lightweight safe room. Also, flood risk accessories that given their properties offer smoke, heat, and toxic fume protection by the choice of the occupant during inescapable certain death situations. This current safe room is specifically designed to fit into retail size boxes for retail outlet sales, and to be able to be moved, installed, or assembled by one person with average abilities and with average household tools.
 The first object of the present invention is to offer a new kind of customizable safe room with accessories that can be sold separately or together at the retail outlet market offering the consumer choices of protection level that may be dictated by a consumers economic position or geographically determined risk factors.
 The second object of the present invention is to create a safe room that breaks down and fits into retail size and style cardboard packaging with any optional accessories available in separate and similar packaging.
 The third objective of this present invention is to use an square tube inside frame surrounded by the body panels surrounded again with a mimicking angled exterior frame that covered all linear panel edges. Thereby, creating a unique "sandwiched" panel design for maintaining panel integrity during severe conditions.
 The fourth object of this present invention to cover and protect all ventilation openings from debris entry into the safe room itself with a grille/screen over the ventilation opening through the panel and a protective hood bolted over the grille/screen in case of repeated impact.
 The fifth object of the present invention is to have an emergency power supply securely and permanently attached inside the safe room especially needed to charge vital communication and locating electronics like cell phone and lap top computers.
 The sixth objective of the present invention is to have an emergency weather radio such as; EAS or SAME technology having automatic alarms at your bed that could immediately wake and alert you when a warning is issued specifically for your area.
 The seventh objective of this present invention is to offer technologically advanced fabrics as accessory layers to the main panels that can be added to increase performance such as; an ultra lightweight fireproof heat shield fabric that can withstand 2000 degree temperatures, or a thin lightweight UD bulletproof fabric. This is the adaptable panel concept.
 The eighth objective of this present invention is to offer a collective group of seals and interior ventilation closure sealed panels that; allow the occupant a choice to seal off ventilation openings in order to stop the influx of deadly elements; and if said accessories are fitted or retrofitted a structurally secure mounting point will be present for a consumer to easily securely affix a medical oxygen or SCUBA style oxygen support system.
 This present invention clearly exposes and overcomes many limitations and disadvantages of prior art in this field using innovative thinking with new technology to bring life saving changes to this growing field.
