Disaster Relief Tents: Do You Know Their Benefits?

Disaster management can grow exponentially in some cases where the correct tools are not available to help the victims. It is important that the basics of life- shelter, food, water, and medical facilities be made accessible to the areas suffering from natural or man-made disasters, as soon as possible. While the food and water have to be arranged for the victims, it is important that the temporary shelters set up as fast as possible. This way the volunteers can tend to the victims while they rest from the ordeal.

Disaster relief tents are the latest innovation in this regards. These tents are light weight and easy to be carried or delivered to far off places that have been hit by any kinds of disasters. The tents can be folded up and set up within minutes and they do not require extreme equipments or many hands to be set up. They are available in a variety of shapes and sizes. This helps the volunteers to customize their tents according to the area available.

In the face of any disaster, the first step is to remove the victims from the area to provide them the shelter necessary from the adverse effects of the harsh weather conditions. In areas of earthquakes or cyclones, most of the shelters are disrupted and the victims are severely injured. The disaster relief tents can be set up in these places and since these tents are specially treated to be waterproof and prevent UV rays to penetrate, they are the best shelter choice for these areas.

Manmade disasters such as mass bombings, fires, or even major accidents require immediate medical attention. While the hospitals and nearest medical centers are prepared for the incoming victims, it is important to moderate first aid right at the point of the disaster. In such cases setting up emergency disaster relief tents and preparing the victims for emergency procedures, is the difference between a life saved and lost.

These tents can also be used for housing volunteers when they have to stay at disaster prone areas after the event to extend help and rescue work to the people who might still be trapped in the area. The tents can be used to set up weather tracing equipments and other technological tools to scope out the areas for people who might be lost or trapped.

These tents can also be used for drills and other training events that are just as much a necessary part of disaster management. Many institutions and even the army use these tents for outdoor mock activities that prepare the volunteers to deal with such situations in real lives. It is important to understand just how fast they can set up these tents or remove the tents from overhead hanging extensions when choppers deliver the tents to disaster-ridden areas. The volunteers also need to understand the experience of living in the tents for extended periods of time and help set up the equipments within the boundaries of the temporary shelters. Many institutions also use these tents for their outdoor events and camping so if you haven’t tried them today, you should certainly do so!
