    I live on a cattle farm in pretty rural area of MS. As more people move closer my wife and I worry more about break ins and such. Also we live on the top of a hill and in the last two years we have had two tornados within a week of Christmas that have been a little to close to home. My question...

    So, I've noticed shows like Doomsday Prepper's with people using shipping containers as underground shelters for a shtf situation and did some looking online about it. I found a few links that say NOT to do this. Just thought I would bring up the topic and see what everyone thought about it. Any...

    Interesting video here of a comprehensive look a group undertook to exam a "discovered" fallout shelter that been sealed up many years. Any provisions for drainage either failed or were not set up at the time of construction. From a longevity standpoint it is certainly something that reminds...

    http://www.retronaut.co/2011/04/cold-war-city/ I could get lost in there "Exploring" and never come out. I doubt if 120 feet below ground is enough to survive a direct hit from a 1 megaton ground burst, though... and you can be sure the Russians knew *exactly* where that thing was, and had it...

    Hello, unexperienced person here... we had a 6x10x6ft high concrete storm shelter buried in our yard this week. it is covered by about 18-20" of dirt. The concrete is almost a foot thick on all sides and roof. It has a large metal door entrance on top and 2 "whirly birds" for air ventilation...

    I found this site. It's for a company that builds bomb shelters. They have lots of good pictures and a downloadable pdf book that tells a lot about the shelters they build. The book and site give a good deal of construction details. Useful to someone thinking of building their own. One could...

    I have mixed feelings about this one. They want you to register your shelter but state that you need a permit to build one. If you register a non-permited shelter, could it be condemned? http://blog.al.com/breaking/2011/06/city_of_madison_residents_can.html
  11. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    So I have always been really big into survival and end of the world scenarios and lately as I get older I feel the need to start to prepare. I have watched a lot of shows/movies and read plenty of books but literally my best ideas and goals seem to be, lets say, unreachable. I am buying a nice...

    I can remember as a kid being excited to get out of class to watch these Civil Defense preparedness films in the school auditorium only to be disappointed and bored. LoL. This one is a classic. Check out the part starting at 18:33 with the mother feeding the daughter simulated (obviously)...

    I've read how China, Russia and others have made the building of their shelters for their citizens PUBLIC.I would like to know why we aren't doing the same! Heck, we're not even discussing it!!!! :mad: I'm pretty sure they have spots reserved for those who are "important" enough or have enough...

    Anyone ever think of any ideas to make your basement more fortified I guess? I was thinking like a small brick or cement hut I guess you could say, just big enough for the family to get inside if a bad natural disaster happened. Thought maybe it could provide more protection from falling debris...

    I contacted a company Safe Zone Shelters and they make beautiful underground bunkers. However I don't have $65,000 to spend on it. I can't build my own because....well I just can't lol. I'm left scratching my head....I guess my basement will have to work when the SHTF. For those of you out there...

    http://sheltersonline.com/ I would really like a modular shelter where I can store some food, blankets, water, and build some bunks into one. I think one of the large versions would allow me to sleep 4+ adults comfortably and still build shelves inside. Thoughts? Experience?
  20. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Hello everyone, I was wondering about underground shelters. If you have on I'd like to hear about it, how it was built, how it's stocked, maybe get some info about the various systems employed (electrical, ventilation). I am also very interested in the industry side of it. Who are the...
