Emergency services are critical to communities throughout the country.  Some operate on the ground year round, ready to respond to humanitarian or infrastructure needs due to fire, flood, storm or other events that disrupt lives and require professionals to hit the ground running. Disasters leave communities in crisis, vulnerable and in need of services – fast. At times like this, impacted communities scramble to organize rescue and support operations that provide shelter for people, equipment and supplies, like medical, food and water. There is a need for essential structures to serve as shelters for displaced citizens, food and water distribution centers, storage for first responder supplies and equipment, or warehouses for materials for repairing vital infrastructure.  Allsite Structure Rentals, a provider of large capacity, highly stable tension fabric structures, can be on-site quickly to provide the temporary emergency services building you need.

Reliable and Durable Shelter when it’s Needed Most

Allsite tension fabric structures are built to last, with a design engineered for stability and durability. The extruded aluminum alloy frame is designed for fast assembly, and Its strength and shape provide for highly stable, long term reliability. Industrial grade PVC fabric is tensioned over the curved frame, creating a tight, secure interior space that is comfortable enough to use as an emergency shelter, and robust enough for use for large equipment or as a spacious supplies warehouse. The curved, tensioned structure holds up to rough weather, including rain, sleet, hail, snow and wind and provides an interior protected from the weather outdoors that can also be climate controlled for comfort.

These versatile structures offer a number of options for customization, such as choice of entryways, such as glass entry doors for people, or large cargo doors, big enough for vehicles to pass through, as well as lighting and ventilation options. The Allsite structure is designed with an open span interior, so there are no columns to interfere with the movement of people and goods. They can be installed on any surface or terrain, allowing community disaster services to be located on site, wherever they are needed, or can be set up as an auxiliary building at regular operations centers and used throughout the year.

Temporary Emergency Services Building Sized For Your Needs

Allsite tension fabric emergency services buildings are available in a range of sizes to fit your capacity and space needs. The structures are high-ceiling and modular, so the length can be customized.
