State-of-the-art inflatable shelters to serve as operation centers
April 6, 2011
The Port of Long Beach's emergency management staff recently tested a state-of-the-art inflatable shelter that will serve as its temporary headquarters in case of a catastrophic disaster.
The military-grade shelter can be deployed by just two people and be fully inflated in less than nine minutes. It offers nearly 900 square feet of space and comes with a power generator and air conditioning unit.
The Port has ordered several of the shelters as part of its disaster preparedness and business continuity plan.
