- National Storm Shelter Association
The National Storm Shelter Association (NSSA) was formed in 2001 with the idea of policing storm shelter manufacturers and resale of storm shelters or safe rooms to protect you and your family from tornadoes and other disasters.
Survive-a-Storm Shelters is proud to be a producer member of the National Storm Shelter Association.
They have a brochure available on their website titled “How Can You Discern Quality in a Storm Shelter?” This brochure will provide answers to the most frequently asked questions that arise when someone decides to investigate storm shelters. They also help determine which is the best shelter for their hard-earned money.
Their checklist includes such elements as structural integrity, door design for impact and wind resistance. It also includes venting for maximum air quality and to relieve atmospheric air pressure changes due to the tornado. The type of steps and ladders and their compliance with NSSA or OSHA standards is discussed. Also, battery-powered emergency radio transmitter or signal-emitting devices can be determined. Finally, choosing site location for your storm shelter, and the business practices of the storm shelter dealer you select is also on the checklist.
They also have lots of other information available on their website to help you and your family or community to make an informed decision on your purchase of a tornado storm shelter or other safe room.
