Under Ground Commerical Shelters
Survive-a-Storm Shelters pioneered the design and construction of underground community storm shelters. When Kia Motors required fourteen 100-person underground community storm shelters to protect the workers at their automotive plant in Westpoint, Georgia, they called Survive-a-Storm Shelters. Never before had any company attempted such an ambitious project, but Kia was impressed by our track record of success in completing difficult and highly complex projects. The end result? Survive-a-Storm Shelters installed what was, at the time, the largest capacity of underground community storm shelters on a single piece of property anywhere in the world.
Since the completion of this project Survive-a-Storm Shelters has expanded its offering of underground community storm shelters to include modular underground community storm shelters of unlimited scale that are designed and engineered to protect 1,500+ occupants. When the U.S. government required such a solution at Tinker Air Force Base in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, they contacted Survive-a-Storm Shelters.
Survive-a-Storm Shelters is a trusted vendor to the U.S. government, with whom we hold a GSA Schedule Contract. We can protect your company or organization–regardless of size–with our wide range of underground community storm shelters.

Transitional Community Shelters
Survive-a-Storm Shelters has developed a novel solution for providing storm shelters for mobile workforces such as road crews, foresting teams, and oilfield workers. The Survive-a-Storm line of transitional storm shelters employs a ballasting system that enables the temporary deployment of large quonset style community tornado safe rooms in the field without the need for permanent foundations.
Survive-a-Storm’s transitional community tornado safe rooms are installed by performing a shallow excavation from which overburden (soil) is removed and replaced by a large metal box, which is then ballasted (filled) will the excavated overburden. Once filled, the shelter is fitted to the transitional foundation and solidly bolted in place. When it’s time to relocate the shelter, the process is reversed. The ballast is removed, the foundation loaded back onto a truck, and the soil returned to original source.
