While flipping channels you may have stumbled upon “Doomsday Preppers” on the National Geographic Channel, a show that highlights the great lengths some Americans will go to in order to ensure they are prepared for apocalyptic events.  Cameras follow survivalists preparing for various end of the world scenarios – war, pandemic, economic peril – and an expert assesses their preparedness efforts and determines if the “prepper” would survive the catastrophe.
Jokes aside, the article ends with the premise that gaps do exist in the government’s ability to respond to mega-disasters and that essentially, everyone (extremist or not) becomes a first responder who must be ready to take on that role. The ability of individuals to prepare themselves for emergencies can likely mean the difference between life and death in the face of a disaster.

Other than squatting in an existing building’s basement or abandoned tunnel, the cheapest fallout shelter is a hole in the ground. Also shown below is a simple 4-inch PVC pipe air inlet and exhaust vent with small 12VDC fans for pushing air through the hole. This shelter isn’t even close to being ideal, but I wanted to show this incredibly low-tech and low-cost method of surrounding yourself with dirt. Lastly, before building anything, especially something underground, do your own due diligence about structural integrety.

While a simple makeshift shelter is better than nothing, and possibly a good interim plan before a more permanent shelter can be built, a professionally built concrete shelter is a better choice – albeit more expensive. Beehive Shelter Systems has a unique shelter design made with interlocking hexagons, just like a beehive.

Other items pre-positioned in the shelter would be bug-out bags for each shelterist that include common camping equipment like sleeping bags, clothes, fire starting tools, etc. Air would be filtered by a commercial 12VDC powered NBC (nuclear biological chemical) filter system.
The advantage of a narrow shelter is that the narrow roof span could take a lot of weight from above – at least more weight than a wider slab roof of similar thickness and reinforcement. We’ve posted this idea as food for thought and to show how a small, low-cost, and low-tech a fallout shelter can be. This entry was posted in Shelters and tagged american, bomb, kit, shelter on September 22, 2013 by Michael. The big take-away is that while nuclear war may be inevitable, it’s totally survivable.

Do-it-yourselfers looking for a quicker path to a complete shelter might want to consider a kit.
For those who prefer to do it all themselves the American Bomb Shelter website can show you how shelters are build step-by-step. If you’re just looking for individual parts like doors, hatches, and NBC air filtration systems, American Bomb Shelter offers those things too. This entry was posted in Shelters and tagged american, bomb, door, fallout, hatch, kit, shelter on April 13, 2013 by Michael. The cost of a single unit shelter like this starts at about $100,000 – check the manufacturers website for current pricing. New for 2013, this commercially built shelter can provide up to four adults for up to 2 months. While the space is small it can still provide safety for those just 0.9 miles from ground zero of a 100 KT weapon.
Even if you’re not interested in buying a commercially built shelter the product description of the H4 is loaded with information about proper shelter set-up. A shelter like this might make a nice cabin, assuming you didn’t mind trading the view for the functionality of a shelter. Little Known Fact: Nuclear Fallout from bomb blasts have a half life measured in hours not years.

Why you shouldn't bury shipping containers for bunkers, Why is it so dangerous for underground bunkers to be made from shipping containers?
Award winning Japanese illustrator based in New York City and instructor at School of Visual Arts. While some of us play the game of wait and watch as the Mayan calender comes to an end, the rest are leaving no stones unturned to prepare for what many term as “Doomsday.” Like various other Doomsday-proof shelters (Phil Pauleys survival rooms or the $10 million bunker), Ron Hubbard has also built a luxurious underground bomb-proof shelter in Montebello, California.
Ultra-luxe, these shelters are bomb, chemical and nuclear weapon proof and sell for a cool ?46,000 ($74,615). Penhaligon’s Alizarin is the exactly the enigmatic scent that your fragrance wardrobe needs!
While the scenarios profiled on “Doomsday Preppers” are extreme, there are actual disasters – like Superstorm Sandy or the recent tear of extreme storms across the southeast and up the eastern seaboard – that are much more likely to occur and for which personal preparedness is essential. While you may not need an underground bunker with a year’s supply of canned food, it is a good idea to have a weather radio, flash light, and some non-perishable food items on hand in case the power is knocked out by a storm for example.
This is a simple example of how a simple hand dig hole could be turned into a fallout shelter. Even a simple hole in the ground like this could save the lives of those downwind of a nuclear blast. Each hexagon is made from pre-engineered, pre-fabricated reinforced concrete panels that are assembled quickly on-site.
Depending on your budget and needs these shelters can be single units or combined in a larger honeycomb.
These items would be used inside the shelter during a stay but could also be used for peace time camping or evacuation. Through holes in the plywood two hand pumps would extend to make it easy to pump water out of the barrels. The door should probably be hung before having its core filled with concrete since the combined weight would be tremendous. To power the air blower(s), radios, and lighting a hand cranked (or pedaled) generator would be used to charge batteries. If you continue to think that nuclear war means certain doom, and do nothing to prepare, you will probably not survive. But if you prepare, you will increase the odds of survival greatly.
American Bomb Shelters sells kits and all the necessary parts for constructing your own bomb shelter. This is great if you’re trying to figure out how to build a shelter yourself and you might learn about new products or techniques. The interior has just 107 square feet of space, but the curved interior shape gives the shelter a spacious feel. This is accomplished by 72 inches of earth over the shelter. This is based on a 30 day radiation dose caused by a 100 KT surface burst that maximizes fallout.
Shown here is a corrugated pip shelter that’s fully outfitted with all the comforts of a tiny home. You could also combine something like this with a small cabin up on the surface connected by a staircase. This is because fallout particles were not initially radioactive, so the radioactivity from a nuclear war would be mostly gone within 28 days – and even after 7 days so low that you could make short visits outside.
Hubbard who has sold the cylinders to a few astrophysicists says he too will be spending Doomsday in one of his shelters. To get this information across, CDC’s Office of Public Health Preparedness and Response and National Geographic Channel announced a joint venture to have CDC public health preparedness and response messages appear on the program to get rational, credible information to a segment of the viewing public curious about preparedness. While you’re putting together your emergency supplies talk to your family about where you would go if you needed to take shelter in your home or if you needed to leave town for an impending hurricane.

If you’re worried about water seeping into your hole in the ground, line it with plastic or a pond liner before laying down the plywood and filling in the hole. It’s also not a permanent shelter, the wood will rot relatively quickly especially if the ground was wet. By manufacturing the panels in a controlled environment, and not on the job site, the panels turn out being 30% to 40% stronger than a cast in place shelter. The entry way is just 2-feet wide and offset from the interior of the shelter to provide more protection by adding another right angle to the entry.
Urine would be kept separate and sealed – urine is ironically stinkier especially when mixed with poop. The door frame and hinges would need to be extremely stout and well balanced to allow for easy door swings.
A DIY air filter could also be built for much less money but may only provide nuclear protection – not biologic or chemical protection. Unlike a nuclear reactor accident, the radioactive fallout from a nuclear blast decays to safe levels within 28 days. Currently nine countries are known to posses nuclear weapons: The United States, Russia, The United Kingdom, France, China, India, Pakistan, North Korea, and Israel (Wikipedia). The kits are available in a variety of sizes with most of the engineering already complete. But the study of this design and designs like it will teach you a lot about what the professionals put into their plans. If you’re considering building your own shelter this might be an excellent place to start. So if a nuclear war were to occur, those prepared to shelter-in-place would have an excellent chance of surviving without negative effects to their physical health. The reader should seek his or her own legal or financial advice from a qualified professional. Hubbard who specializes in manufacturing” recreational bomb shelters” says his business has seen a rise in sales over the past month. Hubbard is rushing with two shelters right now that are expected to be delivered to New York and Indiana respectively, in time for Doomsday.
Not sure what disasters are likely in your area or where you should go during an earthquake or tornado? There are plenty of resources online to get informed about disaster preparedness.
These shelters also install more quickly making the whole construction process more covert – improving the overall security of the project. During an emergency even runoff water from hand washing could be collected, filtered, and boiled for reuse if needed. Hollywood movies and urban legends have grossly exaggerated the long term effects of atomic blasts and have helped construct a doomsday tale that now shrouds the real truth of nuclear war. A total of 31 nations have nuclear reactors (Wikipedia) and some may have the capacity to develop nuclear weapons like Iran. Nuclear technology is here to stay and as more nations gain access to nuclear technology the risk of nuclear war increases. The shelters feature escape tunnels with one sided hatches which can only open from the inside, as well as sealed contamination rooms between the entrance and living areas.
There are multiple compartments to carry notebooks and school supplies as well as a front pocket with pencil holders, a key fob and a mesh pocket. The locking handle can be adjusted accordingly to put less strain while rolling the backpack. Current price and availability information are displayed on Amazon sites at the time of purchase.
