Today we are joined by Paul Seyfried, President of Utah Shelter Systems. Paul has been building shelters since 1986, and incorporated Utah Shelter Systems in 1998 along with his partner, Sharon Packer.
Utah Shelter Systems shelters can be constructed of either corrugated steel or steel plate and can withstand blasts up to the 150 psi range. The shelters are manufactured in North Salt Lake, Utah and transported throughout the entire United States and Canada.
Paul joins us today to discuss civil defense in the US and in other nations, the continued threat of nuclear war, chemical attack and biological weapons. He also explains the value of shelters for storm protection, storing supplies and more. Shelters seem like an “extreme prep” to many but today we take a balanced view of their practical applications.
