Shelter In Place has begun installing shelters for schoolchildren in Oklahoma schools. Shelters made of thick sheet steel are able to withstand both earthquakes, hurricanes and tornadoes, as well as armed attacks. Seven such structures have already been installed, which have been placed in junior and middle school classrooms, and soon it is planned to equip them with premises for high school students.
A reliable bulletproof and anti-storm shelter can be used as a reading corner under normal conditions. But in case of an emergency, it can accommodate up to 32 students and 2 teachers…
...in just 32 seconds.
This was how the drill was held for junior high school students of a private school. It is important to teach children to act coherently and avoid panic during an emergency situation.
Representatives of Shelter In Place conducted field testing of their product: two people from the management were sitting inside the shelter, and he was shot with rifles.
The shelter is equipped with air filters and monitors, with which you can monitor what is happening outside. According to the manufacturers, it resists earthquakes (up to 9 points), hurricanes and tornadoes (up to F5 on the Fujita scale) and even withstands explosions. The cost of such a product starts from 30 thousand dollars.
Shelter In Place company reminds that when it comes to saving lives in emergency situations, sometimes the bill goes by seconds.
