About Storm Shelters of Tennessee

All SST Tornado Shelters are impact tested at Texas Tech Wind and Sciences to withstand debris from an EF-5 Tornado.

Our History

We started Storm Shelters of Tennessee after the February 5, 2008 tornados struck Union University in West Tennessee. Living in Jackson, TN, we realized we needed to supply the best quality tornado shelters, at a cost everyone can afford.

Storm Shelters of Tennessee, Inc is a company that was created because of the need for a different type of tornado shelter in West Tennessee. Tornados have become an increasingly greater threat to our area over the last 10 years. While some have caused minimal to extreme damage to property and loss of life, others have just caused loss of sleep. We feel that your SST tornado shelter provides a safe place for your family with the greatest “peace of mind”.

SST is co-owned by JD Favara and Lee Watson – local Christian families with more than 30 years of combined experience in construction. Our company has found the solution to the unsightly mound in the back yard that one has to race through the rain and hail for protection. We install our shelters in your existing garage or carport, out of site and yet very accessible in time of emergency. Our two families are excited to bring this level of tornado shelter protection to our friends and neighbors. We are based in Jackson, TN – however our services may extend to wherever you want to keep your love ones "safe and sound".
