In this life and in this generation, we are steadily fighting a never ending constant battle. It’s in our nature as people to try and survive the best way we know how. We wake up faced with the fears of the world daily, as we are waged with so many different types of war. War is not technically a gun fight with other nations, war is something you are fighting to beat and control. Whether it be the fight against Ebola, ISIS, economic collapse, martial law, threats of nuclear war etc… must I go on?…. Regardless of what the fight may be, we need to be prepared. Thinking, and preparation is a gift from God, it is a blessing, and not just something you have. You have those blessings for a reason. God wants us to be prepared for the things we are seeing go on today in this cold and dark world, and the things that have not yet begun. He states in the bible to be wise and hide yourself, if not, you will suffer for it in proverbs 22:3. All throughout the bible there are passages that warn us to be prepared.

Here at Rising S we strongly believe in being prepared but also in helping people to be prepared. Our underground steel bunkers are manufactured with you and your family’s safety in mind. We take security, secrecy, safety, and satisfaction very serious. That is why we take great pride in what we do. Rising S Company is the largest, best bunker manufacturing company in the world. We didn’t get that title by luck of the draw we got it because our product and safety features speak for itself. Here is some important information about our bunkers that make them superior to other companies.
• Our bunkers can be buried at ANY depth.
• Coated with an exterior water proof coating ensuring the bunker will last for generations.
• We use Electromagnetic Cathodic technology to prevent rust.
• We only use the highest grade steel and materials on the market.
• Earthquake safe
• Built with space utilization and storage in mind.
• Will act as your first line of defense during a time of chaos
• Lifetime guarantee against manufacturing defects.
• Can be built to withstand any caliber firearm.
• Wont crack, collapse, or mildew.
• Steel will expand and contract as the ground changes with temperature fluctuations.
That’s just to name a few.

So the question I need to ask you is, are you prepared? If so, how prepared are you and at what great links will you go to keep you and your loved ones safe? Times are only getting worse and I see no changing for the good anytime soon. I cannot stress to you enough how important it is to be prepared. Being underground is the safest way to go, you will be off the map and off the grid. No one will know where you are except you, your family, and us. We do not use any outside contractors, we manufacture, deliver and install.

Just remember in today’s ‘’wars’’ just as many civilians are killed if not more than soldiers, civil societies are torn apart and ripped in half, children are scarred for the rest of their lives, economies are completely doomed. The Ebola Virus has already killed 3,439 people and counting. No telling how many people ISIS has already killed. If a nuclear attack hit’s it can take out a whole entire city. Those are just some things to think about… Take the time to take action and prepare for the when and not what if.





So many things today pose potential threats to our homes, our families and the lives we’ve built.  Severe weather pounds large areas of the United States with tornadoes, fires and flooding.  National crime rates continually climb as the economy teeters on the edge of collapse.  Conditions are ripe for catastrophe as we find ourselves reliant on a frail economy for survival.  You don’t need a vivid imagination to be able to foresee the potential wave of instability coming on the heels of any major event such as the one listed previously.  We’ve civil unrest occur in the aftermath of hurricane Katrina.  We’ve seen first hand the devastation left from riots and social backlash in response to political instability, social controversy and civil unrest.   The mounting dangers are ever present and a constant threat to your family, home and ability to survive..

Although there have been many advancements in designing, engineering and building modern homes; the fact remains that much of the actual materials used in construction have remained the same.   Modern homes may be equipped with alarm systems, security surveillance cameras, motion sensors etc… but in spite of all of these upgrades, most homes are still highly vulnerable to high winds, fire and  flooding.  Additionally, the vast majority of houses in America are not “modern” and lack even the most basic security provisions.



It’s easy to see how any significant catastrophe will challenge the pseudo-security of the typical American home.  However the spin-off effects of any catastrophe will always result in civil unrest of some sort.  It’s the “kill or be killed” mentality that the average law-abiding people adopt when confronted with such a scenario.  We all need to feed our family and much of the population will do this at any cost.  It’s logical to predict that people will eventually take to the streets in search of supplies.  The average home made of wood, brick and glass will off little protection against a group of people that are intent on gaining entry.

According to the FBI statistics, one burglary occurs every 10 seconds.  In 2012 there were an estimated $8,975,438 property crimes.  This number is staggering when you consider that this was during a time where resources and provisions are plentiful. Basically the almost 9 million property crimes were committed by the “criminal” element of our society.  In catastrophic times even your average law abiding citizen will go to extremes to ensure survival.



Security is the number one thing a person should consider.  Any preparations made will be worthless if you can adequately protect your rations.  There are plenty of extravagant options that Rising S offers to assist in security….  from underground bunkers and shelters to above ground safe rooms – there are options for every scenario.  However, of all of the options available, one solution is both functional security and cost effective.  I am of course speaking of the above ground safe room from Rising S.   These are typically constructed from 1/4″ steel and rated to withstand winds in excess of 250mph and wind borne objects of 50,000lbs.   The unit is bolted to your concrete slab and it can be built to any dimension or installed behind false walls for confidentiality.   The safe room is resistant to fire, flood, and small arms fire.  Store anything of value inside the unit and in case of home invasion; the unit can protect at least four people depending on the unit’s size.



Every kind of shelter (storm shelters, safe rooms, bunkers etc) are vulnerable to nearby detonation without a blast valve.


What is a blast valve?

A blast valve is used to protect the occupants within a shelter from the effects of a sudden outside air pressure change (such as a nuclear weapon detonation). A nuclear weapon creates a shock wave which creates a sudden pressure change. This change in pressure can produce extreme changes to our normal atmospheric pressure several miles away from the point of detonation.

How Do Blast Valves work?

Blast valves are mounted over the air intake and air outflow piping in a shelter. They work by allowing the low air pressure to move throughout them in either direction, but they automatically shut when there is a nearby high change in pressure such as a detonation. They also closed when there is a negative pressure (a detonation can blow the atmosphere out from its point of origin) which can be just as dangerous as high pressure.

Illustration that shows how our blast valves work.

Why Does Every Emergency Shelter Need Blast Valves?

Any airtight container that you are seeking refuge from a detonation needs a blast valve. Imagine a submarine in a deep sea that has been leak. The sudden change of pressure causes the submarine to implode. A bunker / storm shelter / safe room has similar issues to deal with in terms of an extreme pressure change cause by a nearby detonation.

Let’s say that you have a storm shelter in your backyard. You hear word that a terrorist organization is detonating several bombs in your area. Your first thought is to seek shelter in your storm shelter. If a blast occurs within a certain radius of your shelter causing a major change in pressure, well it’s just not pretty. You have very little protection from a sudden change of extreme pressure in a shelter that doesn’t have a blast valve.  You could have the most fortified bunker in the world, but without a blast valve you might as well be standing out in the open.

There is a solution

A blast valve from Rising S Company provides adequate protection form any sudden change of pressure caused by a nearby detonation. Any type of shelter from Rising S Bunkers can be outfitted to have a blast valve. To learn more about blast valves and how they relate to bunkers, see our blast valve page.
