People like a backup plan, and a bomb shelter is one of the most secure and dependable ways to get through a catastrophic event
Heber City, UT (Vocus) June 22, 2010
In the wake of global disasters such as Hurricane Katrina and the earthquake in Haiti, the Emergency Preparedness Center recently launched seven new models of custom-made bomb shelters.
“People like a backup plan, and a bomb shelter is one of the most secure and dependable ways to get through a catastrophic event,” said Mike Petersen, sales representative for the Emergency Preparedness Center. “These shelters can withstand a three-bar blast and are engineered in a controlled environment to be 30-40 percent stronger than concrete cast onsite.”
Beehive bomb shelters are designed with plenty of room for food storage, are equipped with the alternative energy individuals or families need to survive and are expandable to fit any occupancy level.
“With so much political, civil and natural unrest in the world it makes sense to take steps to protect our families and communities,” said Lane Lythgoe, architect of the Beehive Shelters. “Our shelter system incorporates the most advanced engineering structures on the market combined with quick and covert installation, which offers protection on an entirely different level than all other shelters.”
In addition to building underground shelters, the preparedness company offers a free 46-page guidebook on their site to help individuals prepare for disaster. The company focuses on longevity and resources, and offers its expertise on how people can find the resources they need to prepare for any emergency.
“Many emergency preparedness companies have not been in business long, and they do not have the knowledge, selection and supplies that we offer,” Petersen said. “We take a different approach to educate the public and prepare as many people as we can.”
