So, everyone in Switzerland has a bomb shelter in their house. How come no one labels them alarmists or crazy preppers?
http://www.swissinfo.ch/eng/bunkers-for-all/995134The Swiss do in fact spend more than almost any other nation (more than 20 per cent of their budget) to insure themselves against everything and everyone. But there is a more simple reason: it is a legal requirement.
Since the 1960s, Switzerland has built enough underground shelters to protect its entire population with space left over ...
"Every inhabitant must have a protected place that can be reached quickly from his place of residence" and "apartment block owners are required to construct and fit out shelters in all new dwellings", according to articles 45 and 46 of the Swiss Federal Law on Civil Protection.
