Portable Cabins can be an Immediate Solution during Crisis Situations

Disasters or crisis situations tend to have a serious impact on the lives of people. Thousands of people are affected each year due to various catastrophes, such as earthquakes and cyclones. Major crisis situations have the potential to result in massive loss of life and destruction of property. Such situations are often unexpected and can leave the affected communities in shock and severe distress.


Types of Disasters

Disaster can be natural or man-made. Natural disasters are large-scale geological or meteorological catastrophes that can result in death or property destruction. Some of the natural disasters include earthquakes, floods, tsunami, cyclones  and wildfires, among others.


Human-caused disasters are catastrophes that are caused because of the actions of human beings. These include industrial accidents, shootings, acts of terrorism, and incidents causing mass violence. Such incidents can prompt immediate evacuation from the affected areas and overwhelm health facilities in the affected area.

In the aftermath of any such disastrous situations, food, shelter, and medical needs become the immediate necessities that need to be catered to the affected people. During such situations, it becomes important to provide housing or shelter and immediate medical attention. Portable cabins have emerged as a great alternative that can be used during such crises.
