Preparing Your Home for Storms and Other Disasters

by Charlie Brown on Nov 9, 2013

The nuclear age brought about a mentality which very realistically thought of the eventuality of a nuclear apocalypse with the world’s super power faced with the threat of imminent attack from each other. The strength and sheer destruction of a possible nuclear incident makes for a frightening prospect and thus was borne the nuclear bunker which was the only way to survive and mitigate the event. But nuclear bunkers did not come into being during the Cold war as there have been many uses for underground bunkers during WWII where artillery and air raids meant that living on the streets was often fatal. Churchill’s bunkers are now famously captured through cinema and indeed it as old army tactic to burrow into the ground for shelter during enemy fire.

With the passage of time and with nuclear war thankfully being put off indefinitely, at least in few parts of the world, underground bunkers have become shelter from different threats. Nuclear war is now not as large a fear as that of a massive economic collapse that induces anarchy in society through the collapse of the financial institutions, widespread epidemic, ethnic targeting, terrorist activities or natural calamities. The old underground bunker has morphed into a modern day fort that is removed from the factors affecting the world outside.

Basically, the bunker is a shelter for food and other supplies and if need be, even arms. Being smaller than the nuclear bunkers, these modern day bunkers are cheaper to make and can be made under garages and houses making their existence a secret too. This has uses in case of flooding or a fire or a natural calamity, a place where valuables can be saved from being washed away. Interestingly enough, it can also be used as an effective wine cellar. This is so as the temperatures and the insulation provided from the isolation of the structure result in ideal conditions for storage. The humidity and temperature can be controlled through ventilation systems and thus, wines can be stored in optimum conditions.

One of the scenarios that accounts for one of the many uses of underground bunkers is as such. With the supposed collapse of the country’s economy, the people panic and policing agencies fail and the mechanism for governance also fails consequently. This would call a military sort of existence with constant fighting. The underground bunker though, would be a safe haven during such an event. The primary priority would be the safety of supplies and relying on external resources for as long as safely possible.

Social isolation is the only problem with nuclear bunkers as they keep the inhabitants to themselves in the blanket of safety and thus after prolonged periods of time underground some sort of psychological factors start to seep in. However, with the prospect survival and the fact the human beings have the propensity to heal from all possible wounds with time and help, these bunkers are possibly the only method of surviving a modern day dark age.

Of course, there are those who will claim that the bunker stretches to abnormal paranoia but for those who live in fear or in places where the threat to life is indeed great, this is the only way to assure that no harm reaches the inhabitants.
