Mike Vaughn is transporting manufactured shelters to and from Las Vegas and will move shelters from one exhibit to the other. 


Locate a Safe Room/Storm Shelter Company

Have you been approved to particpate in an area rebate or grant program recently?  Or perhaps you simply want to find a company with a quality shelter that meets FEMA guidelines and/or ICC-500 Standards, let us direct you to that listing.  Our Producer Member listing is located under the "Members" menu box just above.  Or better yet, click here to see the list.

We also have a new feature on our website, LOCATE A PRODUCER.  This feature can assist you in locating those companies in your immediate area or within a specific mileage range. Options are also available to designate the specfic type of shelter you want or need.

*While there may not be a Producer Member listed in your immediate area, many Producer Members install shelters in various areas outside their own.  Feel free to contact any of the Producer Members to see what options are available for you.

 


National Wind Institute (NWI)

To bring together All Things Wind, TTU has created the NWI to better support the interdisciplinary research and educational opportunities in wind science, engineering and energy. The institute combines the former Wind Science and Engineering (WiSE) Research Center and the Texas Wind Energy Institute (TWEI) into one entity.

The Wind Science and Engineering (WISE) Research Center at Texas Tech University was established in 1970, following a tornado in Lubbock that caused 26 fatalities and over $100 million in damage.

It is focused on research, education and information outreach.
