This disaster shelter kit was specially designed by our disaster
expert who has actually run several disaster shelters (One shelter with
up to 2,000 people). It is appropriate for those upgrading the
preparedness of schools, disaster shelters, community centers,
commercial high-rise buildings and public facilities.
One major disaster response agency has adopted our kit design as their
new national standard for, shelters and Emergency Medical Stations.
Every community should at minimum, have a disaster shelter nursing kit
of this quality for each potential shelter either pre-positioned or in
their response trailers ready for use.
The days of waiting for shelter supplies to arrive from out of state
are over. When a disaster shelter is activated, it needs to be supplied
and set up with in 2-3 hours. Each community should have at least some
supplies and organization to immediately open such shelters until they
can be taken over by disaster relief agencies (Red Cross, Salvation
Army etc.) Unfortunately most Red Cross Chapters don't have the
supplies on hand or staff to set up a shelter of more than 100 people,
much less opening multiple shelters across a county without additional supplies (sometimes trucked days away from the disaster)
Our Shelter First Aid Station I functions as a one-kit solution when
setting up the shelter and will handle dozens of minor injuries and
ailments as well as up to 5 persons with major injuries. Laypeople and
skilled professionals alike have appreciated the generous selection.
(Our Disaster Shelter 2 kit is expanded to include additional professional quality diagnostic tools
including a multi-cuff blood pressure set, glucometer, pulse oximeter and additional diagnostics tools to help
identify more shelter residents.) The Disaster Shelter I kit can be set up in a small area (10 x 15 room space, or partitioned private area) as the nurse station and even includes signage. Also designed to be used for injuries when help may be delayed and with all age groups.
Everyday a community in the US, is forced to evacuate and set up a disaster shelter for a minimum of 500 people. Does your municipality have the supplies they need and set up a shelter within 3 hours? How about two shelters?
Please note that the minimum time for production on disaster level shelter kits is 2 weeks - excluding major holidays. Then shipping to your location. So you must order BEFORE a disaster occurs, not on the day of the event.
