Mobile Shelter Information

1st Mobile Shelters in Trinidad

On March 30, 2012 PODS created history in Trinidad after five (5) mobile shelter systems were delivered to the Ministry of Local Government, after the successful award of tender. These mobile shelters were subsequently handed over to five (5) Disaster Management Units in efforts to build their emergency response capabilities within their municipalities. The five (5) corporations included Arima Borough Corporation, Couva/Tabaquite/Talparo Regional Corporation, Port-of-Spain City Corporation, Mayaro/Rio Claro Regional Corporation and Siparia Regional Corporation.

Mr. Owen Sandy, former Director of Tobago Emergency Management Agency (TEMA) delivered extensive, hands-on MOBILE SHELTER SYSTEM training from April 17 to 19, 2012. Disaster Management Units along with other team members of these five (5) corporations learnt how to deploy their multi-functional shelter in less than 60 minutes.

These high-quality MOBILE SHELTERS, supplied by PODS Emergency Management Consultancy & Solutions, will be used in the field as facilities for sleeping accommodations, medical operations, command and control centres, communications and project or administration for business continuity.
