During the peak of the cold war many years ago, there was no guarantee that nuclear war wouldn’t break out. Today, with North Korea controlling a nuclear weapons program it might be time to spruce up the old bomb shelter. While the commotion between America and North Korea’s not settled yet, we are far from being safe.
In terms of being prepared, we should take all the measures to be safe against disasters. We can never be too careful. Bruce Beach of Horning’s Mills, Canada lives this idea.
Bruce built a 10,000 square foot shelter using 42 school buses. He may sound like he’s kidding but it’s definitely the safest bunker you’ll ever see during a nuclear fallout.
For over 50 years, since the cold war in 1970, Bruce has been working on this project to put up the largest pluralistic survival community in North America.
The Ark Two is a bunker 14 feet under the ground that is filled with dozens of different rooms for everyone’s daily activities like wash rooms, two kitchens, a living room, classrooms and a computer room.
During the process of perfecting his task, he has been told to be wasting time in maintaining the entire shelter. Though, the 83-year-old man’s belief that soon enough when the nuclear attack, he and 500 people can hunker down in his bunker.
Bruce already faced 30 cases from the local government for building his shelter because of not having the necessary permits. He even experienced being threatened thrice to close the Ark Two, thankfully they never did.
People may see this as an old man’s irrational act because of his past but Bruce perceives his creation as a safe haven in times of nuclear attack. He claims he won’t require any payment for the shelter’s admission but in return they only have to contribute with the daily errands of the living quarters.
