Canopies for emergency services
There are various uses for canopies and walkways within the emergency service sector. Emergency sectors that could benefit from our solutions:
- Mountain rescue
- Coast guard
- Search and rescue
Protecting your fleet
Your fleet vehicles will not be in use 100% of the time, so it is ideal for them to be parked in a protected environment. Keeping vehicles under cover will keep your fleet sheltered from rain, UV light and potential air born debris.
Covered transport yards
With the amalgamation of Ambulance, Police and Fire Service at one station becoming the norm, the number of vehicles at one location is increasing. This compounds the need for weather protected and cost effective covered transport yards for all the emergency services.
Canopies for transport yards provide shelter for users to enter their vehicles in adverse weather conditions without being affected. The covered transport yard also provides the perfect environment to service vehicles on site.
If your station has been allocated an IRU or HVP, protect your multi-role pod and vehicle carrier whilst on stand-by using a Fordingbridge canopy.
See how Kings Lynn Fire Station achieved cover for their drill yard using a large span canopy. If you are looking for architectural emphasis and entrance cover, take a look at Guildford Fire Station’s entrance canopy.
Protection for training grounds
During hot fire training, it is vital participants remain dry. To make this possible in adverse weather conditions, the provision of a canopy solves this issue and allows training to take place at the scheduled time. The cover can be used for a briefing/debriefing area.
Canopies & walkways for hospitals
On arrival at the hospital with an emergency patient, the last thing anyone wants is to get soaked through in the rain. The use of an ambulance bay canopy will keep staff and patients dry. Similarly, installing a hospital drop off canopy will ensure patients, staff and visitors are protected from the elements. A hospital walkway is also ideal to protect staff and patients from adverse weather conditions while moving from one part of the hospital to another.
Canopies for police stations
Canopies for police stations maybe be used to cover the transport yard which not only offers protection to your vehicles, but keeps personal dry in adverse weather conditions. Outdoor covered areas can also provide an area for training and vehicle maintenance.
