PEACH® Deployed Into a Tornado Ravaged Town


What started out as a light rain around 2:30 p.m. on March 2, 2012, quickly squalled into an EF-4 tornado that touched down for 50 miles in Clark County Indiana causing devastation to the small town of Henryville and its 1,900 residents. Just 30 minutes after the initial assault, a second EF-1 funnel brought 110 mile per hour winds and softball sized hail to the southern region of town. Nearby On Site Manufacturing, Inc. immediately went into action and dispatched the PEACH®.

Austin, IN, May 19, 2012 --(PR.com)-- The PEACH® is a portable, climate-controlled environment that disaster teams can call upon in the event of an emergency. The PEACH® provides a rapid deployment shelter and mobile command center for first responders and emergency crews. In Henryville, this meant volunteers and rescue teams had inflatable tents to use for planning, warmth and nourishment when few structures survived the storm. With the level of destruction brought to Henryville, the organization provided by the PEACH® as a disaster relief center meant teams were there to help rescue, trapped and stranded individuals.

In the first stages of response, On Site Manufacturing set up temperature controlled structures to supply search and rescue personnel and volunteers a warming station for strategy meetings, food and rest. In the second stage of deployment, the PEACH® went to the Health Department headquarters to provide inflatable shelter for inoculations and food distribution. Later on, the system moved to the Henryville-Otisco Pike as a volunteer support facility. The shelter served as an organizational and portable command center for crews still working in Henryville.

On Site Manufacturing began manufacturing the PEACH® in 2008. Initially available only for sale, On Site Manufacturing has taken the PEACH® to a new level by putting it into service as shelter rental. What this means is immediate disaster support for communities and service personnel anytime, anywhere. On Site provides pre-positioned rapid deployment centers at their four branches in the Midwest and Northeast regions ready to act when the call comes year round, 24/7. Each rental consists of:

-One or two 450 square feet inflatable structures with full climate control
-Self-powered Command Light that produces up to 71,600 lumens – enough to light a football field
-Roof mounted notification system to provide reassurance that the PEACH® is functioning properly
-Portable electric air conditioning and heat along with power equipment
-Wireless thermostats for temperature adjustment
-Deployment personnel that will be there throughout the event to help set up and move the PEACH® around as needed.

In addition to the PEACH®, On Site carries a line of power and temperature control equipment to provide a full solution rental package.

On the morning of March 2, 2012, it is unlikely the residents of Henryville knew that they would face disaster just a few hours later. Tornados, hurricanes, fires and other forms of devastation are not something emergency personnel can predict. On Site Manufacturing is a valuable rental resource for communities in the event they need a portable, climate-controlled environment as a utility shelter, first responder shelter or military shelter during an emergency or planned shutdown.
