Exclamation Fallout Shelters are Hot

Fallout shelters, storm shelters and saferooms ... you've probably seen a news story or two lately about them ... folks of all income strata and political persuasions are coming to realize that there's no peace of mind like personal-bunker peace of mind.

Our shelter builder has 22 years of experience and multiple full-time crews on his payroll building and installing steel-plate shelters all over the USA. They're busier than ever and there are as many rationales for shelters as there are customers.

We just want to remind you that we have the most cost-effective, reliable shelter options out there. We build 'em according to your exact specifications ... no cookie-cutter, one-size-fits-all production.

I've had my own shelter now for 12 years and it's the best move I've ever made.

Anyway, I thought I'd just give you an idea of what a small NBC Fallout shelter is running right now (most that we build for customers do run larger). Have a look here at a 6 x 6 x 12 bunker: http://www.safecastle.com/documents/NBC3DModel.pdf

Exclamation

From a Weather Channel program a few years back -- applying a 300 mph wind to one of our builder's shelters above ground ...

And here's more from that Weather Channel episode ... the really cool part where they hurl a vehicle into the shelter and try to blow it up ...

Well ... I can tell you what worked for me ... about 13 years ago now.

This was before I started selling shelters.

As fortune would have it, my family had had three different close encounters over the years with tornadoes. Our home did not have a full basement and thus we really did not have an adequate storm shelter.

We decided to put on an addition to the house and my wife thought it was a great idea if we could at the same time put in a legit storm shelter. It was an easy sell for me to show her that if we were going to do that, we might just as well do it right and make sure our new shelter would protect us against most all conceivable threats -- an NBC fallout shelter.

Of course it needed to be within reason cost-wise (we financed it into the loan for the addition). I shopped around--found the steel-plate shelter builder and frankly, there were no other builders out there who came close to getting us what we needed for the price.

When it was all done, we were both so pleased with the shelter that I became an unofficial shelter evangelist and quickly thereafter arranged to develop a business relationship with the builder to do the work on Safecastle shelters.

Bottom line--our shelter is the very best peace of mind I (and my wife too) can imagine. One of the best decisions we ever made!

Thanks for the response SC. I actually have thought through exactly this scenario as I go back and forth on expanding the house sometimes. That definetly would be the time to do it for several reasons.

Well, today's headlines are already seriously ramping things up here ... looks like no weekend time off for yours truly ...

Well, given the headlines recently, it's no surprise that the backlog on shelter orders is growing fast.

What is an N.B.C. fallout shelter?

N.B.C. stands for nuclear, biological, and chemical. An N.B.C. fallout shelter is a structure that offers protection from any nuclear, biological, and/or chemical disaster or emergency.

Many shelters on the market cut corners, use substandard materials, or just ignore the guidelines and call any shelter stuck in the ground an N.B.C. shelter. We do not. All of our shelters are designed by a certified structural engineer. All of our shelters meet or exceed all of the F.E.M.A. guidelines. Our N.B.C. fallout shelters have corrosion protection that can triple the life of the shelter over many if not most of our competitor's fallout shelters.

Why do I need an N.B.C. fallout shelter?

The United States has over 100 operating nuclear power plants and 16 non-operating power plants. There are also a large number of nuclear fuel and weapon facilities. An attack or accident at one of these facilities could cause a nuclear blast or radiation release. These plants and facilities are each vulnerable to air strikes, truck bombs, boat bombs. The well-equipped and well-armed single madman or small group of terrorists are also valid threats. Protection against the resulting fallout would be a must.

With terrorist countries like Iran, Libya, North Korea, and Sudan, we need to protect ourselves more than ever. This is not mentioning the terrorist organizations that are thriving in country's like Afghanistan (13 known organizations), Pakistan (12), Lebanon (10), India (9), and Iraq (6). Full list of plants.

A nuclear blast is not the only thing that we have to fear from the terrorist countries and organizations. There is also the very real threat from biological and chemical agents that could be deployed in a number of ways. Biological threats such as anthrax, smallpox, botulism, tularemia, and pneumonic plague. Chemical threats such as sarin, hydrogen cyanide, sulfur mustard, chlorine, agent 15, and ricin. We need to be prepared.

Protection

During a Nuclear, Biological, or Chemical emergency all reliable sources say to find a room with as few doors and windows as possible. This room should be already stocked with emergency supplies such as water, food, batteries, flashlights, bedding, emergency radios, and plastic sheeting and duct tape for sealing the windows and doors. If it is a nuclear or radiological emergency, the room should be low in the building. If it is chemical emergency, they say the higher the room in the building the better.

Our N.B.C. Fallout Shelters will protect you and your loved ones from all Nuclear, Biological, and Chemical emergencies, in one place, at a moment’s notice. Not to mention that the shelter offers further protection as a storm shelter or safe room.

Our NBC Fallout Shelters = Peace of Mind.
