The above ground storm shelters are the most cost effective safety alternative on the market, with no expensive and disruptive excavation required, which is great for both new and existing homes. The thought behind designing above ground storm shelters was to make sure that all family members have access to the safety that is provided by our tornado storm shelters. The above ground storm shelters offer a safe alternative for anyone with mobility problems, who may find it difficult to climb stairs in case of an emergency. Many times storms occur with little to no warning and they do not allow for an extended amount of preparation time. Many of our storm shelters are installed in the home or in a garage area where the family in a matter of seconds can walk into be safe in a matter of seconds.
According to FEMA in their report “Taking Shelter from the Storm”, “Having a safe room built for your home or small business can help provide “near-absolute protection” for you and your family or employees from injury or death caused by the dangerous forces of extreme winds. Near absolute protection means that, based on our current knowledge of tornadoes and hurricanes, the occupants of a safe room built according to this guidance will have a very high probability of being protected from injury or death. Our knowledge of tornadoes and hurricanes is based on substantial meteorological records as well as extensive investigations of damage to buildings from extreme winds. It can also relieve some of the anxiety created by the threat of an oncoming tornado.” (FEMA, 2008)
