Emergency Preparedness Containers

As a school, business, municipality or other organization on the west coast of British Columbia, earthquake preparedness is an important aspect of emergency planning. A storage container is a secure place to keep all of your emergency equipment stored together in case of a natural disaster such as earthquake, tsunami, fire or flood.

Your emergency preparedness container can be customized to suit your individual needs and to store whatever supplies you deem necessary. Any of our containers can be used for an emergency preparedness container, from a small 6’ unit to the largest 40’ unit, depending on your requirements. Available modifications include, but are not limited to;

  • Custom paint to match existing structures
