Ruben A. Gomez, PE
Now that you have read our course titled “Tornado Resistant Homes” and realized how our “hero” was able to survive the ravages of a deadly tornado, not only did he survived the event with his life intact, but his house successfully stood up against the fury of the wind and protected his family and his investment as the malefic and contemptuous phenomenon in a few minutes unleashed a path destruction across his community.
Unfortunately, that was not the end of his worries, in the aftermath of the storm there was no water and no power, and that would become the standard of his life in the weeks to come. However, he had no concerns because his house was also, as described in this course, fully equipped and prepared as a survival home.
We all like stories with good endings; however, good endings require preparedness. In this course you will read about what to do to make sure your residential designs include the basic features to reach self-sufficiency. That is what this course is about.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
