Firefighters Get A Much Needed Break With On-Site, Portable, Mobile Shelters
Firefighters have one of the most stressful and dangerous jobs on earth. In constant fear for their lives, firefighters desperately need a place to take a break, recoup and rejuvenate during the course of putting out a blaze. Until now, there were no portable, mobile shelters. To date, firefighters depend on old school buses (or similar vehicles) to serve as their rehab stations: Not very comfortable or roomy.
After working with Landmark Creations for about one-year, the development of an inflatable shelter finally saw production. The Eagan Fire Department will be the first to make use of these brand new, airtight, 20 foot x 12 foot portable, mobile shelters. Firefighters will now be able to enter the tent to escape extreme heat, rest for a few minutes and replenish their fluids. In addition, the inflatable shelter will give paramedics room to setup their equipment in order to monitor on-scene firefighters.

Self-supporting, These Tents Are Easy to Transport and Quick to Set Up
Once on-site, the inflatable shelter can be standing within five-minutes. Equally as important, it deflates and rolls up with ease allowing firefighters to arrive and depart scenes with little effort.
