Potential Underground Bunker Issues!

I've seen most of the TV show episodes of "Doomsday Bunkers". Prepping is a great idea...I do it myself.  There are a few "Details", however, that shows like this fail to address.  One episode concentrated on the shelter door standing up to vandalism, neighbors, etc. attempting entry! Probably will keep them out...until they cover your air intake or use smoke or tear gas on same, to flush you out!

Can't remember any episode that featured an "Escape Tunnel"!  For my peace of mind this needs to go 50 to 100 yards away from the shelter and come up in a screened area! Various scenarios make this critical: Fire, fallen trees, debris block main door, above Vandals, etc. Several shelter builders listed on the sidebar feature escape tunnels in the larger, high-end units.

Building or buying a Bunker, some things to consider! Comments welcome!

Garage Floor Storm Shelters ....As Seen on FOX & CNN

Moore, Oklahoma featured on CNN & FOX News...the in-ground garage storm shelter that saved lives!  Several manufactures build and install them. $5000 is a small price to pay for safety!  Almost irresponsible not to have one! Should be mandated in all new construction in Tornado alley!

Several other manufactures of these easy to install and retrofit Storm shelters!
