Storm Shelter Featured at Emergency Management Conference

Interactive Tornado Shelter display offers insight and education to emergency management professionals at recent conference.

A storm shelter complete with a custom interactive display and staircase for easy viewing was one of the most prominent exhibits recently featured at an Emergency Management Association Conference. Attendees were able to get into the storm shelter and experience the process of opening, closing and locking the door. Education regarding tornadoes and tornado shelters is an essential part of preparing the state as a whole for this unending threat. Though the EMS does not endorse any specific tornado shelter, FEMA has set up guidelines for testing the likelihood of a unit to survive an F5 tornado.

The Granger ISS was the storm shelter being exhibited at the EMA Conference which included Emergency Management employees from many counties around the area. The organization comes together for continuing education as well as to handle business elements of the profession. The Granger ISS exceeds all FEMA standards for in-ground storm shelters. The door of the shelter exceeds FEMA 320 and FEMA 361 guidelines including testing that simulates debris impact and wind speeds of 250 MPH or an F5 tornado.

The Granger ISS is a unique tornado shelter in many different ways. Through exhibiting at the Emergency Management Conference, Granger's employees were able to educate EMA employees on the storm shelter’s innovative features. Granger Plastics Company makes continuing improvement of its products a priority and in return has become a leader in storm shelter innovation.
