How To Keep Your Family Safe With A Panic Room
Most of us have seen the movie Panic Room, and hope that our families never have to go through something like that. Maybe you’re wondering though if a panic room can really help keep your family safe. Panic rooms, what we prefer to call safe rooms, are designed to protect you and your family from dangerous events, including home invasions, burglaries, terror attacks, and most commonly from extreme weather events like a tornado or hurricane.
Making the big decision to install a panic room or safe room in your home is the first step to creating a safer environment for your home. However, there are many things to consider when deciding how to keep your family safe with a panic room. Here we go over some things to look for, and how when it comes to safety and reliability, Valley Storm Shelter blows away all the competition.
Protect Your Family With A Panic Room
When you’re ready to make sure without a doubt that your family and loved ones are safe in an emergency situation, then a safe room might be exactly the solution you’re looking for. Here we go over what actually qualifies as a panic room, what to look for, and even how to customize your personal space.
What Is A Panic Room?
Panic rooms, or safe rooms, are typically defined as reinforced rooms, closets, or spaces within a house or building. Typically these are customized spaces that homeowners, business owners, and families can retreat to in case of an emergency situation - including home invasion, and a tornado. Whatever might threaten the well-being of you or your family can be thwarted with a certified safe room. These rooms and spaces are designed to protect whoever is in it until the emergency passes, or at least until law enforcement and help can arrive.
These rooms should be designed to hold enough oxygen for several people for numerous hours if it wants to be considered a certified panic or safe room.
