Yes as a conventional bomb shelter if you have a least 3 ft of dirt on top. Not for a nuclear event since air isnt filtered and door isn't air tight.

It goes into the ground with no slab required. The contractor I found did place gravel under the shelter. The contractor had experience installing in ground pools which helped.

The shelter is solidly built and best way to describe it is that it reminds me of a dumpster. It has five oval openings around the door that are screen protected and hidden from view. The top of the main compartment sits about 18 inches below the door. I camped out in it and felt it would hold up in a storm. I do think it would be very warm in the summer. I did place plywood on the floor for a warmer feel. I like the rugged feel to it but dont like the lack of air flow coming in from around the door. Battery operated fans are very helpful.

Lacking other equipment
It a good idea to have them during the storm..but it is lacking air vent..It can get extremely hot down there and need air vent to circulate air and to keep cool down there without burning up.
