When preparing for disaster, it’s important to ask all the questions. Number one, which safe room is right for me? There’s a common misconception that the best option is an underground bunker. It’s true that being underground creates many natural barriers between the safe room and danger. However, above ground tornado shelters are extremely safe as well. We’ve been hard at work here at U.S. Safe Rooms designing structures that withstand almost everything that can be thrown at it.
Above Ground Tornado Shelters, Are they Safe?
In the past 15 years, several strides in engineering have been made in tornado shelters. We’ll spare you the details, but our above ground safe rooms are protected against 250 mph ground speed tornado events. That means debris will not break through your tornado shelter. Above ground, or below. Our engineers have built every structure to all relative FEMA recommendations. For comparison, an F5 tornado is classified at 200 mph. Within your tornado shelter an F1 tornado will feel like nothing at all.
In any case, getting out of an emergency situation alive requires a plan. A tornado shelter will increases the survivability of any incident considerably. However, a plan to reach that shelter is even more important than the shelter itself. The media tends to sensationalize every disastrous event for ratings. The truth is that a well rehearsed family escape plan and a safe room can easily save a family. Property can be replaced, but a life cannot. If you’re considering purchasing a tornado shelter, know that an emergency plan is just as important if not more so.
