FIU-FAST making good use of the 1935 Awning Kit on Miami Beach

Attendees at the Miami Beach Air and Sea Show were a little bit safer this year, thanks to the Florida International University Advanced Surgical Transport team (FIU-FAST), and their 10-bed Western Shelter critical care hospital. This mobile facility treated 26 patients over Memorial Day Weekend, mostly for heat related illnesses.

We continue to be proud of the great work that the FIU-FAST team does with our shelters and support systems. Their regular training exercises, and real world deployments, serve as an excellent model for emergency preparedness.

Many of the products show in these images are manufactured by Western Shelter. Please contact us and reference this blog post if you would like to know more about any of them!
