This is one of the things that makes me think that it was designed as a shelter. This is an exhaust ventilator from the basement room. The metal door on top of the angled vent opens when the fan is on and closes by gravity when the fan is off. This vent is located in front of the east wing in the bushes next to the parking lot. This vent is about 2 feet square in size.
Here is the entrance under the east overhang prominently marked with a fallout shelter sign. A wide double stairway leads down on each side.
Here is the community room looking towards the outside double door entrance/exit. Double doors can be seen at far end of room. I asked the manager if the shelter was ever stocked with supplies and she said that it wasn't.
This hallway is at the west end of the basement. Exit at end of hallway leads to stairway that opens to back of the south side of the building. Another shelter sign here used to have a capacity sticker. The capacity sticker was peeled off so I couldn't tell what the intended capacity was.
