About Me

Hi, I'm Rainey McGuigan and I'd like to extend a warm welcome to you. Thank you for visiting my site, Disaster Shelters. For the past few years, I've been a Peace Corps volunteer in Africa, and during that time I've discovered how important a well-built disaster shelter can be. Recently it occurred to me that it would be a good idea if I could create a place where I could bring all of this great experience and put it in one place. The end result was this little site; a place where you can get information on every aspect of disaster shelters. I'd like this site to be interactive, so if you have any questions or would like to leave a message, please feel free. Thanks for stopping by.

What to Include in Underground Shelter Plans

Underground shelter plans are an important part of the preparations for a bomb or nuclear fallout shelter. It is not only the blast of a bomb that calls for the need for shelters, but also the radiation and other environmental problems that can occur in the aftermath. Shelters can only provide the most protection when the underground shelter plans have been prepared and carried out properly. Radiation is nothing to play around with. Find out what you need to include in your underground shelter plans in this article.

When some people think of underground shelter plans they think only of a blueprint. However, underground shelter plans should not only include protection from radioactive material, but everything that is needed for ultimate survival. While it is true that underground shelter plans should include a layout of the shelter that you plan to use as a defense from a missile attack, they also must include everything that you will need to stay in the ground for many days or even months if needed.

Civil service agencies often have their own underground shelter plans that are very extensive. They design underground shelter plans that feature underground shelters that go on for many miles and have multiple doors. Their underground shelter plans allow a large group of people to survive for a very long time. Their underground shelter plans not only covers the type and thickness of the concrete used, but also their underground shelter plans include energy generation.

When designing underground shelter plans, your bunker must not only be hardened to withstand gamma rays but you must build it with quality construction and you should also feature all the comforts of home. When making your underground shelter plans, build a site where you can live for as long as a year or more if needed. There is no way to really tell the duration of the effects of nuclear fallout.

Do not rely on the emergency services in your area to rescue you if your underground shelter plans fail to provide adequate protection. If your undergrounds shelter plans only deals with the blueprint of the bunker, then it is time to change them. Think about all the issues that could arise, such as thermal heating. Do not make underground shelter plans that protect you from just one type of event.
