DHS Shelters Provide Relief To Tsunami Victims

DHS Technologies provided several of its MX and XB shelters, as well as several fuel fired heaters, to the Japanese Red Cross Society to support recovery efforts following the tsunami, according to the company.

"The people of Japan have been greatly affected by this disaster," according to Jeff Jackson, vice president of business development for DHS Technologies. "Our shelter systems are a key component to providing the Japanese Red Cross Society with the infrastructure they need to help with stabilization efforts and serve as facilities to provide direct relief to people suffering in affected areas."

As a part of the U.S. Army's Standard Integrated Command Post System (SICPS), the patented Deployable Rapid Assembly Shelter, or DRASH, is a mobile, quick-erect/strike shelter system that integrates shelter, mobility, lighting, heating, cooling and power distribution.

DRASH systems can be utilized for a variety of purposes such as a command-and-control center, 100-bed medical surge facility, decontamination facility, billet, school, or triage unit as it is being used at the Ishinomaki Hospital in Japan by the Red Cross Society.

The DRASH is made by the same company that creates similar but upgraded shelters for law enforcement. They're typically used for critical incident response in lieu of or in addition to more traditional command posts.

DHS Technologies is the parent company of Reeves, which manufactures the Deployable Command and Control Equipment (DC2E) and Incident Command Post (ICP) portable shelters for use by law enforcement at critical incidents.
