Industry Emergency Response Extends Beyond COVID
By now, the demand for temporary facilities to address the COVID crisis seems to have been met. The team here at MBI was considering taking down the crisis pages when we realized, sadly, that there will always be a need for facilities in an emergency.
That fact could not be more obvious as we watch Hurricane Laura’s track towards the Gulf Coast. As an industry, we have always responded quickly to natural disasters including Hurricane Katrina and Super Storm Sandy among many others.
Our industry, more so than any other, has the ability to respond with rapidly deployable buildings on a day’s notice, set up interim facilities during times of recovery, and rebuild with permanent structures post-disaster.
We have reached out to our contacts within the National Governors’ Association and FEMA to remind them that we are ready, willing, and able to assist with this disaster and the ones that will surely follow.
We hope that everyone in the impacted area moves to safer ground and stays out of harms way as this event unfolds.
