Relief tents can be a major asset when disaster strikes. They provide immediate, emergency shelter when you need it most. You never know when disaster will strike, that’s why relief tents are the perfect solution to provide safety when you need it. Because they can be quickly constructed and can be placed anywhere, they are the perfect solution when you need emergency shelter.

 

A temporary relief shelter should be easy-to-assemble and made from quality parts. In the most difficult times, you need to find a cost-effective solution you can count on. Relief tents come in different sizes that allow you to accommodate small to large groups of people. There are several circumstances that might put you in a position where you need a relief tent. Let’s look at some common uses of relief tents.

 

Relief Tent Uses as Field Hospitals

Field hospitals are large mobile medical units, or mini versions of hospitals, that can be constructed right at the scene of a major catastrophe. When people need emergency medical care, relief tents can be very effective in immediate treating patients who have fallen victim to serious injuries due to a major catastrophe. They can be a great way to prevent casualties and treat patients until they can be moved to a safer place.

 

Relief tents are commonly used as field hospitals in military situations or situations where disasters or mass casualties are reported. Having a relief tent that can be quickly assembled is important to reduce the number of deaths that may occur in an emergency like these. Medical equipment and personnel can be brought in to diffuse major medical situations and treat patients right at the scene of the disaster. Resuscitation and other critical medical activities require shelter to be performed safely and effectively. That’s why relief tents are a great resource for medical emergencies.

 

Portable Barracks

Another common military use for relief tents is portable barracks. There can be an increased need for these types of buildings in war times or for other large rescue missions. Soldiers and other military personnel can set up camp and have a comfortable place to rest until they have to set off on their mission again.

 

Portable barracks may also be needed to host refugees or hostages who have been rescued. They allow military personnel to safely house individuals until they can be brought safely home again. Besides comfort, relief tents provide safety features and protection which wouldn’t be possible with basic tents.

 

Tent Cities

Tent cities are temporary housing facilities for people who are homeless or lost their homes due to a disaster. Especially for a major catastrophe like hurricanes, fire, or other natural disasters, relief tents can help relieve emotional turmoil during these difficult situations.

Relief tents provide a safe, secure shelter to people during their most difficult times. They can temporarily protect those who have lost everything until they can be effectively re-located somewhere permanent. Relief tents provide a safe place to guard the vulnerable and their valuables so they can get back on their feet and find safety in their worst moments.

Temporary shelters are a great investment to protect your most valuable belongings. Motorcycles, trucks, SUVS, and cars are expensive and should be properly protected from the harsh elements of outdoor weather. If you have the space to support a temporary shelter, this may be the best option for you to protect your investment. Although these cost-effective storage solutions are durable and dependable, they can experience problems over time.

 

Strong winds, heavy snow, severe storms, and normal wear and tear can lead to common problems for your temporary shelters. The good news is there are usually easy fixes available for the most common temporary shelter issues. Let’s take a look at the most common temporary shelter issues and how you can fix them.

 

Most Common Temporary Shelter Issues

The two most common issues that temporary shelter clients face are loose canopies and buckled or bent supports. Although dealing with any issues can be frustrating, there are easy solutions to both of these. Let’s take a look at each:

 

Loose Canopy Issues

When a canopy comes loose with temporary shelter, it can be due to a number of reasons. The most common cause of loose canopies occurs when the portable shelter was originally set up haphazardly. Frequent construction and deconstruction of temporary shelters can lead to the improper installation of your canopy. Additionally, changes in the seasons and stormy weather can cause your cover to come loose.

 

The best way to handle loose canopies is to fix them before they cause more problems. Use a spreader bar to properly and carefully spread the loose cover. A spreader bar can be easily obtained by calling your portable shelter dealer. Follow the instructions exactly as directed to avoid issues with spreading the cover. Once your cover has been properly fitted to the frame, be sure all straps and buckles are secured tightly and properly to avoid further issues.

 

Buckled or Bent Supports

Although portable shelters are built tough and can withstand the harsh elements of winter, you may occasionally come across buckled or bent supports. This problem is more common during the winter months, especially if heavy snow loads accumulate. The best way to prevent these issues is to remove snow as it accumulates or as quickly as you can. This will help prevent stress on your structure.

 

If your support beams have already bent or buckled, have them replaced before further damage hits your structure. Failure to do so can cause you to lose your structure altogether or lead to damage to your store items or vehicles.

Despite the fact that issues might arise when it comes to your portable shelter, they are an effective and affordable means of outdoor protection for your most expensive investments. If you have the space on your property for portable buildings, a temporary shelter will be of great benefit to your entire residence or commercial property.
