This disaster shelter kit was designed by our disaster expert who's actually run several disaster shelters (One shelter had up to 2,000 occupants). It is appropriate for those upgrading the preparedness of schools, disaster shelters, community centers, commercial high-rise buildings and public facilities. Frequently purchased by disaster response agencies and communities as the national standard for, shelters and Emergency Medical Stations.
When a disaster shelter is activated, it needs to be supplied and set up within 2-3 hours.The days of waiting for shelter supplies to arrive from out of state are over. 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.
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 without additional supplies (some times days away from the disaster)
Our Shelter First Aid Station II 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. This expanded kit features additional professional quality tools including a pulse oximeter, glucometer, otoscope and additional diagnostic tools to help identify more quickly ill shelter residents.
Users can work on both major or multiple trauma injuries when help may be delayed as well as standard minor injuries with all age patients.
