Basement fallout shelters vs. Above Ground Fallout Shelters
Basement fallout shelter is a type of shelters are located in a basement to build walls of considerable thickness. A basement shelter budget depends on whether you are to build a new basement or a recondition the one you already own. You need to make sure that the basement is structurally sound before using it as a safe place to stay during a natural or man-made catastrophe. Having a safe haven in your basement is a great idea for a disaster preparedness scenario. Just step downstairs and close the door behind you if things feel a little shaky.
If you’re living in a home with no basement, all is not lost. An Above Ground Fallout Shelter is another option for you. Fallout shelters are not always underground. Above ground buildings with walls and roofs dense enough to afford a meaningful protection factor can be used as a fallout shelter. Effective public shelters can be the middle floors of some tall buildings or parking structures.
