InGround Fire Safety Shelters
THE ULTIMATE WAY TO SURVIVE A WILDFIRE FOR YOU AND YOUR FAMILY
For residents in the Western States, the reality of experiencing nearby wildfires might hit too close to home. Fire officials now agree that the possibility is no longer a matter of “if” but “when and where” an inferno will suddenly ignite. As a result of the speed and intensity of wildfire flames, many victims have been found in incinerated homes, just outside of their front doors, or inside of their cars before they could flee.
Whether you're a new or established homeowner who lives near fire-prone areas, installing a permanent, in-ground fire shelter is a critical investment. It is the last resort for your first priority – to save your life and those of your loved ones.
Your life-saving InGround Fire Safety Shelter qualifies as a depreciable asset under Section 179 of the tax code. Check with your accountant to see how your InGround Fire Safety Shelter can help pay for itself.
