Got a Tornado Proof Shelter? Got an MST in There?

Akron, Ohio – March 31, 2010 Tornado season starts January 1st, and ends December 31st. There’s no time of the year a tornado is not possible. That being said, spring and summer are when most tornados occur across the USA.

Tornado Risk Map

While most citizens take the “chance” (any given spot in the US has a greater than 99 percent chance of never experiencing a destructive tornado), a few people have invested in shelters, ranging from earthen holes in the ground like in The Wizard of Oz, to concrete or steel reinforced hidey holes resembling survivalists’ fallout shelters.

But local, state and federal governments need more than that. They need large-scale structures they can fit people and equipment into. Equipment like the Skycasters Mobile Satellite Trailer (MST). Homeland Security, FEMA, states health and safety, and first responder organizations across the US have such shelters, and those that have Skycasters’ MST in their shelter are ready to restore voice and data communications at the flip of a switch after the destructive winds pass.

Skycasters Mobile Satellite Trailer

The Skycasters Mobile Satellite Trailer, equipped with a C-Com auto pointing satellite dish that’s powerful enough to assist whole communities with their first response communications, as well as ongoing reconstruction needs, can be driven hundreds of miles, or around the corner to the spot it’s most needed. It has its own generator, and a Wi-Fi antenna that can connect wireless computers up to a thousand feet away.

Your team is ready for emergencies year ‘round if your shelter has a Skycasters Mobile Satellite Trailer waiting inside.
