A storm cellar made in Ohio was provided on "The List", a prime time television program that includes tales from numerous regions of the country. The Granger ISS in-ground storm shelter was featured in a tale on July 18, 2013 covering emergency preparedness and particularly how to be most safe during a twister. The story got the interest of the Cincinnati local editor for the program due to the turbulent seasons recently. It was also a point of interest that the maker of the highest quality single family is based in the region.
The tale showcased Linda and Ted Nichols of New Richmond, Ohio who found themselves in a scenario many residents deal with. They do not have a basement or cellar in their house and were uncertain exactly what to do when the sirens that represent storm risk were set off. It is a typical reality that lots of residents do not have a safe place to go in an emergency and it is factual understanding that the best location to be in a twister is an in- ground shelter developed to shield you from that type of threat. It was their decision to take their household's safety into their own hands that prompted to them to have a storm shelter installed in their back yard. "Before we heard sirens we didn't understand what to do per say and so we know what to do now is get in the shelter. It's a great secure feeling to have this," said Ted Nichols.
Having actually a system set up is a easy and quick procedure essentially consisting of excavating a hole, placing the shelter inside and filling in around it. "Once inside the shelter turn the lights on. You will lock three point locking system on the door. You have 2 sources of ventilation in the facility through the door and in the vent," stated Shawn Cravens of Granger Plastics Company. The expense of the facility is roughly $7000. Linda states cash well spent to safeguard her family. "To know that this home can be replaced and we can not so that's the reason we spent the money," stated Linda Nichols. "The List" airs in Cincinnati, Baltimore, Cleveland, Phoenix, Tampa and Tulsa.
