Our concept is simple: To provide a safe and affordable place where a dedicated group of people can survive serious SHTF events together.
Unlike certain well known high-cost luxurious doomsday shelters where you buy or rent expensive accommodations, sit back and relax while the world outside comes to an end, we expect all our members to actively contribute to the group’s survival.
We are not a luxury hotel!
By becoming a member and paying the annual membership fee, you are assured of a place in our facility during a SHTF event. This includes the following:
- Your own private locker for your valuables
- Access to a bunk bed
- Food and water for 3 months
- Access to toilets and showers
- Access to the entertainment area
- Access to the library
- Access to the medical facilities
- Transport from the local airport or bus station
- Access to the Internet (when available)
- Access to Radio/TV stations (when available)
All members will be required to take up several activities, depending on the type of SHTF event. Activities include areas such as:
Pets and other animals
Pets will not be allowed inside the facility because of sanitary and safety reasons. Well trained and socialized dogs may be brought only after prior approval and they will have to stay outside in a pen/shelter (which will have to be built first). Aggressive, unsocialized and/or untrained dogs are not welcome. Be aware that the temperature can go down to -30C in the winter and your dog will need to be able to handle that.
Members are encouraged to bring chickens; a large chicken coop and henhouse will be constructed outside. Brooding machines and other useful equipment for raising chickens is also quite welcome.
Other food-animals may be acceptable, but this must always be discussed first with the staff to ensure it is feasible.
Weapons for hunting and defense may be brought but a license (which must be valid in Sweden) is required for any and all weapons and these licenses and valid ID (such as a passport) must also be brought, no exceptions. All weapons will be stored in weapons lockers (SSF 3492 certified) when not in use for hunting and/or defense and will not be allowed to be carried inside the living area of the facility. A logbook of all weapons and ammunition checked in and out will be maintained and audited regularly. Unlicensed weapons will not be allowed and any abuse of weapons will not be tolerated. Untrained and unlicensed persons will not be allowed access to these weapons at any time. Swedish law regarding firearms must be followed at all times, even during SHTF events.
License free weapons such as knives and certain air rifles may be brought, however most of the same rules apply; all weapons will be stored in weapons lockers when not in use and they will not be allowed inside the living area of the facility. All use will be audited and abuse will not be tolerated.
Threatening any staff, other members or authorized visitors is unacceptable and the offender will be dismissed from the facility immediately and their weapons will be handed over to the police (provided the police still operate, if not then the weapons will remain in storage in the facility).
Staff members are exempt from dismissal but other sanctions may be applied.
A limited set of tools is available in the facility. Members are encouraged to bring their own tools, especially those used for maintenance and construction of vehicles and buildings, farming, logging, carpentry, blacksmithing and other trades.
Tools must be returned after use and must be cleaned and maintained properly in order to extend their lifetime as long as possible. After all, replacements may not be available for a long time.
Access to electricity may be limited, so unpowered tools are also very welcome.
Compressed air will be available (provided we have power) so air powered tools are also useful, as are their accessories such as hoses, filters and oil.
Diesel/Gasoline powered tools such as chainsaws can also be brought but please bring fuel as there is no fuel stored on site, except for the generator.
The membership fee is 240 Euro per person per year for adults, and 120 Euro per person per year for children up to 18. All children must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. A membership renewal invoice will be sent 2 months before expiration and must be paid no later than the day your membership is due for renewal. Members with overdue payments will almost certainly be denied access to the facility. If you wish to cancel your membership, please indicate so in our members portal. You are free to cancel at any time, even after you have received the renewal invoice. There will be no refunds of remaining time after cancellation.
To become a member you will first need to qualify and agree to the terms and conditions. Start by filling out the membership request form with your contact details, skills and competences. We will then review your request and see if you would fit in the group.
The facility is normally used for commercial business and is not accessible because of security reasons.
Members will thus not have access to the facility apart from during the tours and actual SHTF events. The facility owners will decide when an event is serious enough to open the facility to the members and activate the appropriate contingency plans.
The facility owners will organize an event at the facility site, including a tour of the facility once or twice a year, (potential) members will be allowed to inspect most of the facility during this tour. Access to the engineering, security and business areas is restricted.
Members are encouraged to leave feedback and suggestions on how to improve the facility.
Non-members will not be allowed to enter the facility and will not receive any food, but depending on the severity and duration of the situation, the membership may vote to allow them to stay in a tent/caravan/camper outside the facility, in exchange for labour. They will need to provide their own food in this case.
Transport from the local airport or bus station to the facility can normally be arranged. We can be contacted via mobile phone or internet if these are available, but you are encouraged to bring a PMR radio or Swedish Jaktradio in order to ensure you are able to contact us in case the mobile phone network and/or internet are down. Both the local airport and bus station are within radio range of our facility and we will be monitoring the channels (details available in the members portal).
All other transport to and from the facility must be arranged by yourself. Members are encouraged to travel to the facility in groups. If travelling by car, consider bringing a mountain bike, along with as much food and other supplies you can safely carry.
Secrecy and Security
While absolute secrecy is impossible, members must keep the location and security details of the facility to themselves. Information about staff or other members may not be shared. This restriction remains in place even after membership is cancelled.
Our staff monitors the facility using several systems, including (but not limited to):
- Cameras on the outside of the facility
- Cameras on the inside of the facility at the entrances and security doors
- Cameras in the technical areas of the facility, such as the generator room and the life-support systems (water supply, air supply and air filtering systems)
- Pressure sensors (to monitor the overpressure of the living area)
- Humidity sensors
- Door open/closed sensors on all security and gas doors
- Access control systems to limit access to technical areas
Monitoring can be done both inside the facility as well as from remote locations. Automation is used where possible, camera footage is stored on secure servers inside the facility.
In case conflicts arise between members that they cannot solve by themselves, staff will first attempt to mediate a solution. If this proves impossible a hearing will be convened where all members are encouraged to attend. The conflicting parties will each get a chance to explain their side after which the rest of the members will decide how to proceed. All members agree to honor the outcome of the hearing. If a solution cannot be found at the hearing, the facility staff will decide how to proceed.
In matters involving the security and management of the facility, the staff has the final word and all members agree to accept this.
