Kansas City, MO, March 05, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- John Finnessy, executive director of the National Portable Storage Association, a nonprofit membership association dedicated to the advancement of the portable storage industry, is featured in the March 2009 Mobile Self-Storage Magazine.
The issue features Finnessy discussing his views in an article entitled, "Portable Storage to the Rescue!: Modular Medical Sites Aid Swine Flu Pandemic." The article details how portable storage and modular storage buildings are offering solutions to scanning and quarantining patients, storing swine flu vaccines and medical supplies, and otherwise helping to thwart the spread of the dreaded bug.
"Swine flu isn't getting as much attention as it did when the outbreaks first occurred, but the danger has not passed," Finnessy says. "In fact, the World Health Organization says the global spread of the H1N1 flu has not peaked and urges countries to continue their control actions. Considering that the southern hemisphere will soon enter its winter months, we could see more spread of this dangerous flu. Portable storage can help."
In the article, Finnessy discusses how portable storage units have evolved in the past few decades to accommodate more than cargo. In addition to the H1N1 issue, he notes, portable storage has come to the aid of hospitals and other healthcare agencies for many years as a viable storage solution.
"I applaud Mobile Self-Storage Magazine for keeping the topic of H1N1 in the spotlight," Finnessy says. "By continuing to educate portable and modular storage vendors about opportunities to serve the unique needs of the healthcare industry, we can potentially play a role in saving lives."
