Making aboveground home fallout shelters is intended for persons who prefer an aboveground shelter or, for some reason such as a high water table, cannot have a belowground shelter.
The shelter is designed to meet the standard of protection against fallout radiation that has been established by the Federal Emergency Management Agency for public fallout shelters. It can also be constructed to provide significant protection from the effects of hurricanes, tornadoes, and earthquakes, and limited protection from the blast and fire effects of a nuclear explosion. It has sufficient space to shelter six adults.
Aboveground home fallout shelters can be built of two rows of concrete blocks, one 12” and one 8”, filled with sand or grout, or of poured reinforced concrete. Windows have been omitted; therefore, electric lights are recommended for day to day use.
The details and construction methods are considered typical. With this comprehensive and illustrated guide by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, any do-it-yourselfer can build an aboveground home fallout shelter that can also be used as a tool shed or workshop. But of course, it’s more important that it will do a great job at its intended use – that is to provide shelter to protect yourself and your family against a fallout.
