Survival Shelters & Emergency Shelters

Survival Shelters By Alaska Structures Provide The Ultimate Defense Against The Elements

You are part of a small 4-person crew consisting of a mining engineer, a geotechnical engineer, a geologist, and environmentalist, responsible for collecting valuable rock core for a mine feasibility study. The rock cores will be analyzed to determine the grade of material, as well as identify and quantify ore reserves.

Just before finishing your last round of drilling, an unexpected winter storm rolls in and creates near white-out conditions. The temperature drops to below freezing, aided by a wind chill making it seem even colder, visibility is limited to 5-10 feet, and snow is accumulating quickly, making navigating the sloped rock faces dangerous. The base camp is a mile-and-a-half away. Do you risk traversing the narrow switchbacks and steep slope of the mountain side you and your team are working on or do you stay in place and wait out the storm for conditions to improve? These decisions can be a matter of life or death.

Whether you have a governing body like the Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) mandating workers are equipped with survival shelters to protect themselves when working away from base camp, or choose to provide survival shelters as part of your mine rescue or emergency preparedness plan, Alaska Structures® is the leading supplier of engineered survival shelters. Our survival shelters and emergency shelters can be engineered to provide instant structures when potentially dangerous situations like the above mention scenario arises.
