Even Emergency Services Need Emergency Services

What to do when a firehouse itself is damaged beyond repair? Kudos to their leadership for calling on EventQuip for an alternative emergency solution. After a careful review of the location as well as a detailed consultation with the fire chief, we proposed a solution at the initial site meeting including the guarantee that the fire company could park their trucks inside and occupy the temporary building within 24 hours of approval. Needless to say, we got that approval.

For obvious first responder reasons, the location of the temporary firehouse would need to be in the same spot as the actual firehouse. Using the existing parking lot of the damaged building was the only way to go. We built a temporary firehouse large enough to fit two fire engines, two smaller fire trucks and all the firefighting gear. As one would imagine, access to the temporary firehouse was a must! We designed the temporary firehouse to allow access through three aluminum roll up doors with more than twelve feet of clearance for the fire trucks. Additionally, two standard man doors for personnel access were installed at appropriate positions on the temporary building.

Our tented temporary firehouse provided exceptional weather protection for the firemen, including its 90 mph wind rating. It remained in use for a total of nine weeks until the actual building damage was repaired.

These emergency services are just one more creative adaptation we make with our temporary structural inventory.

Looking Back at Another Award-Winning Event Tented by EventQuip

EventQuip Award Winning Tenting Company Large Corporate Events

Hard to believe it’s been ten years since EventQuip created over 23,000 square feet of tented space for the Scantastic 2002 Event.

This space was needed to cover the multi-levels of marble steps, landings, and sprawling lawns in front of historic Memorial Hall in Philadelphia’s Fairmount Park. A 60′ x 240′ white tent with peaks reaching 25′ high was erected as the Main Tent. To keep the 1,500 guests, 120 restaurant vendors, 100 volunteers and over 20 different entertainment groups safely under cover, thirteen additional connecting tents and marquees were built. The proceeds from this culinary extravaganza benefitted SCAN (Stop Child Abuse Now). Our efforts were rewarded with a Gala Award from Special Events Magazine, one of the most coveted awards in the tent and rental industry.
