Disaster Relief

Whenever groups of people need to be relocated or are temporarily displaced, there is the need for base camp support facilities to sustain them. These relocations or displacements can be due to natural disasters, civil disruptions, migrant populations, mass gatherings, or military maneuvers. For any of these reasons, displaced populations require at minimum the need for shelter from the elements, basic sustenance, potable drinking water, and sanitary facilities. In addition, facilities may also be required to fulfill the needs of law enforcement, fire protection, medical, educational, and administrative services. Depending upon the type, location, and duration of the relocation or displacement, it is possible that everything normally associated with a civic inventory may need to be provided.

Typical requirements may last anywhere from a weekend to a year. With a large inventory of strategically staged assets, in-house transportation capabilities, and proven experience we stand ready to respond.
