Reinforced and coated doors and frames lock in three areas for safety against storms while being easy to open with gas-assisted actuators.

When A Storm Hits Too Close To Home

"Before we got our own storm shelter at our house, our only option was to go to a neighbor's house. The closest neighbor to us is ¼ of a mile. However, it isn’t a ¼ mile drive, it is a stone's throw. Therefore, it’s about a 5-minute drive away. This night in particular we had a storm coming, and we weren’t sure which route it was going to go. At some point, the storm started in our direction, and that’s when things got scary. Just like many other Oklahomans, we waited till the last minute. Jason, myself, and DJ piled into the car and sped over to our neighbor’s house all the while hearing the radio announcing that our area needed to take cover immediately. With Jason driving, the 5-minute drive only took about 2 1/2 minutes. DJ was little, but she was old enough to be aware. After the storm, we went back home. She started asking when we would be getting a storm shelter of our own. It was roughly 3-4 months later when we surprised her with her own in-ground storm shelter (LifeSaver Series). It was like Christmas! She ran and got on it and just sat. The feeling I had was one of relief and security now that I knew my family would be protected when the next storm blew in."

Testimonial from Erin Birdsong


Concrete storm shelters may come from multiple manufacturers depending on model and availability. All are fully compliant with FEMA storm shelter standards. Dimensions and quality will be consistent. However, there may be slight differences in the aesthetics i.e. look of the door, air vents, door shocks, etc.


Prices include delivery & installation within a Survivor Shelters location. Mileage or travel fee may be assessed if more than 50 miles from the nearest local installer. Please contact our office for further details or the location of the nearest installer.

"Very happy with the whole process of getting our in ground shelter installed. The crew was very knowledgeable, friendly, respectful of our property, prompt, and on time. Very informative. The shelter was placed exactly where we wanted it. They made sure we were happy before doing the backfill. I highly recommend the Survivor Shelters Team!"
