    Modular Buildings Provide Reliable Interim Solutions During Natural Disasters and Recovery

    It may surprise you that 91% of Americans have experienced a natural disaster, with consequences running the gamut from temporary loss of electricity, to displacement, to immediate medical emergency, according to a report by financial analysis group ValuePenguin. Six in ten Americans believe they will be impacted by a natural disaster in the next three to five years, says a recent Harris poll. No wonder--the incidence of extreme events, including hurricanes, earthquakes, wildfires, flooding, landslides, tornadoes, blizzards, drought, and ten other “natural hazards” classified by FEMA--has increased fivefold over the past fifty years, according to the World Meteorological Association. 

    Disasters can strike with little to no warning, so access to the right solutions at the right time can mean the difference between recovery or experiencing a long-term disruption to daily life — and your business. A modular building can serve as an immediate solution as a temporary office, classroom, medical center or storage facility. Modular building solutions provide a turnkey, temporary facility during floods, fires, earthquakes and pandemics.

    With over 40 years providing modular building solutions nationwide, mobile modular is available when disaster strikes. All our units come in a range of sizes and configurations and can be outfitted with HVAC units, ramps, lighting, high-security windows/doors, furniture, and more. If you’re a private business, our customer service team is ready to help. State and local government agencies can utilize the Disaster Recovery Purchasing Program to acquire modular buildings on a GSA contract, which applies during disaster recovery and just as importantly, before disaster strikes, while developing a disaster preparedness program. For more information, see our GSA page.
