Whether your property is in the midst of a drought or in the middle of a hurricane, the most secure place to find a refuge during an emergency is underground. There are several different types of storm shelters, ranging from small, residential shelters to large, super school-sized emergency shelters. These shelters are very affordable and are an excellent way to save money.
In contrast to above-ground storm shelters which require digging a hole in the ground below-ground shelters are easy to install. The shelters are simply lowered into the hole, then filled with concrete. When the weather turns bad enough the lid is put on, and the Shelter is bolted to the concrete slab. They are more secure than shelters built above the ground because they are built beneath the ground. You won't have to worry about an unsound roof or damp, uncomfortable conditions.
In addition to above-ground storm shelters, there are also underground shelters that can be installed in your garage. This shelter is comparable to other underground shelters but it's located under your garage. The only difference is that the above-ground shelters are constructed of high-quality steel and must comply with the requirements of FEMA and local codes. The best method to secure your home is to construct your own storm shelter, however, make sure you hire an expert and obtain the right permits before you begin.
