Operation

2. Transportation to disaster area The cases will be moved from the storage area (ESU) with forklifts that load the cases from inside the ESU and bring them to the truck. The truck crane will lift the cases onto the trucks. There should be separation between the "Unit Cases" and the "Platoon Cases“.


Modular Handling Crates for Search & Rescue Equipment

Operation

3. "Backyard Method": equipment set up in the field. Upon arrival to disaster area, equipment will be offloaded (either by truck crane or forklift) and will be transferred to the disaster area. Packages are used for storing equipment in the "backyard" of the disaster area. Rescuers themselves will work out their own packages and unload the contents of the packages for use.
