Survivor Shelters is a partner company of JT Septic Co. We proudly serve all of Northeast Oklahoma with the installation of concrete storm shelters and steel safe rooms.
Growing up in Oklahoma, we have seen our share of devastating tornadoes and the path of destruction that is often left behind. And yet, we are amazed at the number of homes, both rural and in our local communities, that still plan for finding shelter from a tornado by hiding in the closet or trying to drive away at the last minute.
This didn't make sense to Erin Birdsong, President of Survivor Shelters, as she managed her other company, JT Septic Co. (Formerly, J&T Service Co.) At that time, JT Septic Co was already ten years old and had been installing tornado shelters for most of that time. However, Erin believed that JT Septic Co.. was not able to focus sufficiently on the storm shelter market. Erin's husband Jason managed the day-to-day operations and onsite work for JT Septic while Erin focused on growing the company. She then decided to create a dedicated business just to promote the awareness and need for storm shelters and manage the sale and installation of those storm shelters and safe rooms in the surrounding area.
Survivor Shelters makes it a policy to keep every model available onsite as a Demo for you and your family to see and test out. We firmly stand behind the quality of our storm shelters and having these onsite allows everyone to see the quality both inside and out.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
FEMA recommends three square feet of floor space for each person in a tornado shelter.
Lead times vary depending on the season. The normal lead time is two to three weeks from the time of your order until your shelter is installed. During the spring and fall tornado seasons lead time may increase to four weeks. Expedited orders are available for additional costs. As we are experiencing a higher volume of tornadoes, our volume of orders is rapidly increasing. Please contact us for a more precise estimate of time.
A typical in-ground shelter installation takes approximately two hours to complete. Excavating hard rock extends the time.
Some cities and towns require a building permit. Contact your local Building Inspection or Code Enforcement department to find out. Storm shelters are typically treated as accessory buildings for permitting purposes. Cities vary in their permitting requirements.
City building inspection departments are accommodating and will walk you through the process. Getting a permit involves completing a simple building permit application, providing two copies of your property plot plan (or survey) with the shelter location designated on the drawing and engineering drawings of the shelter (which we will provide to the city). Some cities require the contractor to obtain the permit. We will work to make your experience as pleasant as possible.
We believe so. A storm shelter is to benefit you while you live in your home. It may make selling your home easier.
Yes, we will call a utility locator in, you as a homeowner are responsible for locating your own water line from water meter to house, and your septic or your sewer line to the city tap as utility locators will not locate these lines. We will do our best to assist you in locating these lines but ultimately it’s the homeowner's responsibility.
