It hasn't been requested of me, but I'm planning at some point to come up with an emergency facility for my site. It's a poor location that would get flooded badly in a hurricane surge, so I want to develope an alternate emergency operations facility. Im' considering events like 9/11 and the 2003 blackout also. We currently have some large real estate (4-5 acres) that is undeveloped and on the top of a hill, with two small "shack" buildings on it. One is an old box truck body, the other is a cinder block building. Neither have running water, although both have lots of electricity. There is also a generator that can support things as they are for I think like 10 days on a full fuel tank. I mentioned to my boss that I'd like to build an emergency operations facility out there, and he didn't want to, he said the only reason we'd ever use it is during a hurricane, and there are large towers nearby that would be more likely to fall in a hurricane, and he doesn't think anyone should be near there if one of them fell. I would like to dig a structure there, though. A concrete encased bunker. That would allow the surrounding ground to absorb any falling towers energy. I want to be able to have a few people be able to man the site withotu leaving for several days if necessary. I would like to have running water pumped on site electrically (since we'd have electric through the genset). Some other things I'd want/need: -A shower and full bathroom, with a 50 gallon tank in case we lose electric -3-4 offices, or maybe a large conference room with removable dividers -1-2 bunkrooms -a kitchen -HVAC with outside air filtration (not that we'd be in there in time after a chemical attack or something, which I would consider beyond extremely unlikely in this area anyway) -Fire sprinkler system -Stocks of canned foods and MRE's, rotated out annually (at least) -Antenna feeds and utility feeds for communications ANyone have any experience building fallout shelters? Military guys, got any thoughts?
