With our new forced air ventilation claustrophobia should be greatly reduced or eliminated.  There are several ways to overcome most of that. First of all, be the last person in and leave the door open until you hear a tornado coming or feel it’s time. You won’t have a problem shutting it for a few minutes. Most people feel better if they are in charge of the door. Generally speaking, people are only in their shelter about 15 minutes and remember to tell your neighbors, family, and co-workers you have a shelter and make sure to register it with the local authorities. We also offer an 8-ton escape jack for an added sense of security.
