Shelter Service in Guthrie
Did you know that Guthrie was the first capital of what we know as Oklahoma State today? Known primarily as a railroad stop in its initial years, Guthrie is famous for having over 2000 buildings from the Victorian Era. Most of the Victorian architecture has been preserved by the locals, which isn’t something you see across other towns in the state. As a town with a rich history of immigrant settlers, Guthrie houses the impeccable Oklahoma Territorial Museum and Carnegie Library, where tourists, students, and researchers alike can learn about the origins of the town and its colorful past. Guthrie is also known today for its contribution to the performing arts, housing Oklahoma’s oldest theatre firm called the Pollard Theatre Company.
All in all, Guthrie is home to a spirited community that is the heart of this town, bringing people together in celebration and success. But each year, tornadoes threaten to destroy the peace and tranquillity this town has cultivated. Approximately 229 tornadoes have hit Guthrie since 1950, with an average of 4 tornadoes each year! Some of the worst tornadoes in Oklahoma State’s history have touched Guthrie, such as the deadly EF5 tornado that ran 63 miles long across 1760 yards. This violent tornado, which was part of the outbreak sequence in 2011, took 9 lives and left almost 200 people injured.
In such circumstances, the people of Guthrie need the best storm shelters and safe rooms available, as their vulnerability to EF5 tornadoes is extremely high. We at Oklahoma Shelters are not only humbled to extend our services to the people of Guthrie but also consider it our duty to provide residents of this tight-knit community with high-quality products and services. Residents can find high-quality steel and concrete storm shelters, underground bunkers, and garage shelters.
Every safe room or shelter we’ve ever built has been tested to withstand an EF5 tornado, meaning that you and your family can ride out the worst storms to hit Guthrie without compromising your safety. In addition, all our shelters exceed the safety guidelines FEMA mandates, as well as pass the Texas Tech Impact Test for added protection. Not only are our shelters wheelchair-friendly, but you can also store emergency first aid kits and communication equipment safely without compromising on space. In addition, we can also customize your safe room or storm shelter according to the number of people in your family and also install the safe room door based on your preference (opening inward or outward).
Our storm shelter installation process is fairly simple, beginning with an in-house consultation to identify where your shelter will go. Expert contractors will assess your property, ask you about your needs and requirements, and then offer their suggestions on which shelter you should opt for and where. In less than 24 hours, your storm shelter or safe room will be ready for use. So don’t wait for storm season to hit before you act; call now and make your bookings for our consultation!
