FORTS Fold-Out Rigid Temporary Shelter Systems

Transport your morgue to the incident site and quickly refrigerate upon arrival

Providing dignity to the deceased and protection to the living during a mass fatality event can easily exhaust emergency response resources. Preserving victims for safe on-site examination, decontamination and identification has often lead to the use of operationally inefficient refrigerated trailers as a last resort.

FORTS utilizes a ground breaking fold-out technology to provide a comfortable, rapidly deployable, and highly energy-efficient portable shelter.
