FEMA Camps more than likely exist but I doubt the Coffins

In fact, these boxes aren't coffins. They are burial vaults, specifically grave liners. The base (lid) goes on the bottom, the casket is placed on it, and the box lowered onto the base and sealed. The purpose of these vaults is to seal the grave from water intrusion (think diving bell effect), and to lend strength to the ground above it. Graves are no longer dug six feet down, in most cases as little as 18 inches of dirt separate the grave from the surface. Caskets are not designed to accommodate large amounts of weight, such as the dirt above it (static load), tractors and digging machinery such as backhoes (dynamic load), or impact forces (impact load). Drive a backhoe over a casket with 18 inches of dirt on it, and the casket will crush, and the backhoe drops on your Grandma. Burial vaults, made of heavy duty polypropylene and strengthened with a rib design, protect the casket and provide structural load bearing properties to increase safety for cemetery workers and protect the sanctity of the grave.
