Roles of Disaster Relief Tents

Temporary shelters are shelters such as large tents that can be quickly set up and taken down as and where they are needed in order to provide shelter and 'relief' from unpleasant weather conditions. Many people when told about temporary shelters will think of the tents that you get at fairs, or they will think of the canopies that you have in your gardens. However there are many other uses of disaster relief tents other than for use around the home or commercial use, and of course the ability to quickly provide protection from the atmosphere is one that has many applications and advantages.

Disaster relief tents are just one example of a use for temporary shelters, and are a particularly important and useful example too. If you are not familiar with what disaster relief tents are, here we will look at their application and uses.

The idea behind a disaster relief tent is of course for it to be used in disasters – such as natural disasters, accidents or crime scenes. In other words then, if there is an earth quake, an explosion or a shooting, then disaster relief tents can be set up on site as a base of operations. The fact that these are temporary shelters means they can be easily transported to the location, and they can be just as easily taken down when they are no longer needed.

This has many benefits. First of all, disaster relief tents will be used as a form of shelter and protection for victims. If a victim has been in a building that collapse or exploded for instance then they are likely to be injured, in shock and highly distressed. To remain in that environment would be dangerous for them as they would be prone to accident or panic attack, liable to fall over, and in the vicinity of other potential threats such as shards or debris. In such cases, disaster relief tents give them somewhere they can remain where they won't be in danger of further trauma and where they can start to recover. This also gives the emergency services somewhere to work and this can allow them to begin treating the victims without having to leave them where they lie or risking getting dirt into wounds.

Of course injuries and accidents will need to be treated by a hospital where possible, and many of the victims will eventually be transported for this purpose. However in an actual disaster there may well be too many victims for this to be immediately possible for everyone, and at the same time many of those victims should not be moved. This is where disaster relief tents come in useful.

For the emergency services this is also a highly useful 'base of operations'. This gives them somewhere that they can meet and discuss strategies, it allows them to store tools and equipment without fear of it getting damaged or lost, and it allows them to operate out of the public eye and the eye of the media. In this respect disaster relief tents can act as a makeshift base and help to organize the response.
