If you're wanting a storm shelter, you can visit
www.stormshieldtornadoshelter.com . These are fiberglass units in 3 different sizes, the largest holding 12 people for approximately $6000.00 installed. I got a price on a concrete one and they wanted $10,000. Hope this helps

Yes! There is a very good company in Columiba, Ky. called Pyles Concrete (located on Hwy. 55) that sells f.e.m.a. approved concrete storm shelters. I'm not sure what the phone # is but I know they are listed in the phone directory. Some of the area mobile homes businesses are selling this product when people buy new mobile homes and need storm protection.

Last time I was in Phoenix I heard that they had a F2 tornado once in history. Maybe you should just move there.

I lived there for ten years and they do get their share of bad weather with high winds. There were numerous small touch downs in the surrounding communities in that county but no touch downs in the city, proper. Best wishes.

As a former Fiberglass shelter owner, I'll NEVER OWN ANOTHER!! They are garbage!! If anyone tries to sell you a fiberglass shelter- Run! Run hard and fast! Do your homework- my "previous" shelter manufacturer spent more time repairing, removing, replacing, repairing, removing, replacing my shelter than my family EVER spent in it! The fiberglass Rots, molds, mildews, leaks, cracks and everything!

With my new home, I almost bought a concrete shelter thinking it would be extremely durable, but then I found a Double Wall unit made by Granger. I HIGHLY recommend this unit!! Was around $6,000-$7,000 when it was all said and done... but this shelter will be here FOREVER!!!

I bought one of the fiberglass shelters thinking I was doing the right thing for my families safety and piece of mind, WRONG! This was the worst mistake I have ever made!
The shelter is always sweating, and whenever I go inside we have to wipe the ceiling down and seats with towels! We have snails all inside of it and spiders! My kids are scared to even go in the thing. I have also noticed black mold growing inside the shelter. This is why we didn't go with a concrete shelter because I have friends who had one and if it wasn't leaking it had mold and mildew.
I am at a loss here and don't know what to do, I have seen now where the fiberglass has been linked to cancer REALLY? I have been looking at the website for the granger plastics shelter and if it really is what they say I am willing to try it.
I will be posting to let others know how this plays out, in hopes that no one else will fall victim to the fiberglass shelter as I did!

The GRANGER ISS, is THE ONLY STORM SHELTER OUT THERE! Please I cannot say this enough DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY ON THE CHEAP CRAP DEALERS WILL TRY AND SCREW YOU ON!!
The GRANGER inground safety shelter will provide you and your family protection for generations to come! It's made of plastic, which means it will last forever! I can't say enough, take it from someone who was taken advantage of by these fly by night fiberglass shelter people. If you don't believe me comment on here and I will send you pictures of the cracked, leaking shelter that I ripped from the ground.
For info on how to get a granger shelter go to Ingroundsafetyshelter.com and see for yourself how these are the only shelter for inground safety.

I have personally had to replace a plastic Granger ISS model with our long lasting fiberglass tornado shelters because the Granger ISS was leaking. The poor customer waited a year for Granger to fix the problem. They finally turned to Storm Shield Tornado Shelter for a shelter that was not only safe but didn't leak. Rumor has it the company has shelters leaking all across the country. Storm Shield Tornado Shelters are guarranteed not to leak. We actually back it. Unfortunately there are a bunch of other fiberglass shelters that are junk.
Here is a video of some ballistic testing we did with a 357.
