Tornado Shelter Dealer in Kentucky Donates to St. Jude House

Tornado Shelters in Kentucky are becoming a sought after addition to new homes. The St. Jude's home, a fundraiser for the Children's Research Hospital, now has the benefit of protection from tornados and other weather emergencies thanks to West Kentucky Earthworks, an authorized dealer of the Granger ISS. Josh Pitman and Ricky O'Neal owners of West Kentucky Earthworks have been working with Jeda Homes, the builder of the St. Jude Home for a while on the installation of a Tornado Shelter at the house. Angela Pitman, Josh Pitman's wife was also involved in the decision to donate a shelter. She said "We are excited to be able to do this and be part of the St. Jude's home. After hearing about so many losses we were delighted to be able to give people safety."

West Kentucky Earthworks not only donated the tornado shelter to provide a safe place for the new owners of the St. Jude's Home to go, but to also show other home owners how easy it is to install a tornado shelter at their existing home. With a limited lifetime warranty against cracking, leaking or other material deterioration, triple locking system, handrails for easy accessibility as well as an installation that typically takes less than half a day, a storm shelter is an easy one-time investment that will provide decades of safety for a family. Kentucky, Illinois and surrounding states have seen deadly tornadoes already this season. It is becoming more common to need protection from weather emergencies year round as the seasons have become more extended and unpredictable. Tornado Shelters are growing in popularity in Kentucky and around the nation. The value of the Granger ISS shelter donated by West Kentucky Earthworks goes beyond dollar amount, but offers safety and peace of mind which is priceless.
