Not a whole lot to see here. The Mayor's Office was so small and full of stuff that I could hardly stand in it when I visited in 2001. In 2013 the room had been cleaned out so I took the above right photo just for posterity. It was from this room where the Mayor of the City of Dallas would have (via the Emergency Broadcast System) communicated with the city. The door to the Rear Entry Hallway is on the right in the above left photo. The two Civil Defense water barrels were in the corner in 2001. The cardboard postersized drawing on the floor to the lower left of the barrels is a detailed floor plan of the Machine Room and Air Filter Room. It was by looking at this floor plan that I knew to go back and look for the Air Intake/Filter System and Escape Hatch.

Men's Restroom

Nothing really interesting about the men's restroom. A few toilet stalls, sink and a shower stall like the women's restroom. What I did find of interest was hanging from the ceiling. It is the exhaust air blower. The duct coming in at the top left of the above left photo is the exhaust air duct. It runs along the back wall of the shelter. The gray unit attached to the duct is the exhaust blower. The rectangular air vent to the right of the blower near the wall is one of the exhaust air vents. The round air outlet next to the blower is part of the incoming air system. It appears that the two ducts are hooked together but the incoming system duct is only attached to the bottom of the exhaust system ducting. The exhaust duct goes through the far wall into the kitchen on the other side of the wall.
The outlet of the exhaust air blower goes through a duct which passes through the back wall of the shelter (to the left in the picture) and up to the exhaust air anti-blast valve on the surface. I never found a place that the exhaust anti-blast valve is accesible though. The blower outlet just goes straight into the wall.

The right photo shows the men's restroom shower stall. There are 3 toilet stalls and a small sink in this restroom. Toilet stalls are to the immediate left in the photo. Door is to left opposite the shower stall. Radef/Operations room is on the other side of the wall behind the shower stall. Exhaust air blower (in photo at left) is mounted on the silver plate seen at the top of the picture.
