Safe rooms save lives
With all eyes on Oklahoma as they are picking up pieces from tornado devastation, one local company is helping to save lives during storms.Survive-A-Storm makes both above and underground tornado shelters, community safe rooms, survival bunkers and bulletproof panic rooms in Thomasville, GA.People don't think that we're in tornado alley but if you look at the maps we're not out of harm TMs way in Southwest Georgia and in going up farther north towards Macon and north Georgia, it gets even worse, said Lucas Stewart, CEO of Survive-A-Storm.The shelters have withstood EF5 tornado simulation and meet all FEMA regulations. It takes about four hours for an underground shelter to be put in a backyard while it takes only about two hours to install a shelter cube into a home. Survive-A-Storm shelters can keep five to 500 people safe and Stewart reminds everyone preparedness can make all the difference when a storm hits.
