Is it FEMA approved for an F5 tornado?

Asked by: Shorty
No shelter on the market is ever ‘approved’ by FEMA. However, all of our storm shelters and tornado safe rooms are FEMA Compliant. FEMA has a strict set of standards by which all companies should build their tornado safe rooms, and Survive-a-Storm Shelters pride ourselves on the fact that we meet and in some cases, exceed their expectations.

Will my cell phone and radio work inside this steel pod?

Will my cell phone and radio work inside this steel pod?
Asked by: Larry
We have had some people tell us they do get service inside the shelters and others say not so much. It depends on the strength of the signal for both radios and cell phones. When going over your safety plan with your family and loved ones, we request that you 'test' your phone and radios during practice runs to know whether or not your phone and/or radio works for your unit's location.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Was a very pleasant surprise on how easy it was... Was a very pleasant surprise on how easy it was to install in our garage! After viewing how to install cement anchor bolts on line, it then became clear and all went well. Did the job all by myself. Great Comfort and Peace of mind. No more worries of bad storms heading our way. Great Looking shelter! Very satisfied...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Survive -a -storm round one. We bought the round one for me and the wife and a couple neighbors or Grandchildren. We could pack in eight if we had to. I've never done it before, but this year we have a very secure place to go in the event of another storm like 1979. My wife just couldn't allow herself to get under the house like me, so we bit the bullit and I poured the slab. It really feels good to have conquered that situation, so bring it on Mother Nature, my wife is ready!!! Me Too. I love the powdercoated white shell, you can see if there are bugs before you get in. Thats another story. Syd Litteken

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well -- we feel the shelter will be effective....but as far as clear installation instructions ... Well -- we feel the shelter will be effective....but as far as clear installation instructions or even someone answering our questions it is lacking. The instructions go on and on about how it has to be bolted down properly but doesn't even tell you what size drill to use. We have asked what to do in case of lightening...Its metal..doesn't that attract lightening which is part of a storm? We assume it definitely needs to be grounded but is that enough?? Should we also enclose it??

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good storage We purchased this a couple of months ago and thankfully have not had to use it yet!! But it is loaded and ready if we do need to take cover! Stuck a sign on the front of the door to not to forget our meds. Just grab and go. Could not have asked for better service. From our Home Depot in Lubbock Texas to delivery and inbetween. They were all great!! Thank you for our safety

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I feel safer We got this installed about a month ago. It fits perfectly in our garage. Fortunately we have not had to use it yet but living in Oklahoma I'm sure it will be put to use. I feel so much safer now knowing that I just have to run into our garage to reach our safe room. I have already recommended it to several friends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my shelter I love the reinsurance of my shelter. I am thankful I have not had to use it yet but it is good knowing it is there to keep my family safe if we need it. They installed it quickly and it is very heavy materials and a good shelter.
