Kansas is right in the heart of Tornado Alley and Wichita, KS has the largest population in the state. That means a lot of Kansans need to be ready and prepared for the severe weather that produces all types of tornadoes. Statistics from the National Climatic Data Center (NCDC) reports a huge upswing in the number of tornadoes in Kansas since NCDC began keeping records of when they occur, how strong they are and where they touch down and travel. There is, of course, an ebb and flow from year-to-year; however, this increase in tornadic activity could be explained by more sophisticated radars and technology to identify tornadoes.
The most important key to survival, as most residents of Wichita, KS already know, is to be weather-aware (especially during the height of tornado season) and to have a shelter to go to quickly. Even with all the latest ways to predict and forecast the threat of severe weather which can produce a tornado, they can drop down quickly and do incredible damage. That is why Eric Stolfi started Storm Defense Sheltersâ€”to give Kansas residents real protection.
Storm Defense Systems has one of the largest selections of Storm Shelters and Safe Rooms available. They know that every home, school, business and church in Kansas has its own unique issues involved in getting the best possible shelter to protect the people you are responsible for. Thatâ€™s why Eric keeps up with all the latest research and best possible shelters. He knows they will save lives.
They have the new innovative Vortex Vault Shelter Bed by Life Lift that was recently featured on ABCâ€™s Shark Tank. The Shark from Texas, Mark Cuban, invested in itâ€”realizing it was the most accessible indoor shelter-to-date since it is right in your own bedroom. Yet Storm Defense Shelters also offers other Storm Shelters, all tested to FEMA standards, such as:Â Above Ground Concrete Safe Room, Concrete Slope Front Shelter, Concrete Flat Top, Under Ground Garage and Above Ground Garage Shelters, Community Shelters (for schools, businesses, apartments, Mobile Home Parks, and churches) and even Pet Storm Shelters. Every model of Shelter and Safe Room has been rigorously tested by Texas Wind Institute to pass or exceed FEMA protocols.
Eric Stolfi started Storm Defense Shelters when he and his family lived out in the country and had nowhere to go for protection from an approaching tornado except a weedy ravine. Now his mission is to provide safety for your family, students, employees and all Kansas residents at an affordable price.
