Development and management of NERTís Emergency Mobile Trailer Unit (EMTU) fleet is one of the many responsibilities of this department. EMTU
enhancement, maintenance, inventory management, and even production are every day responsibilities.
Of the many activities, manufacturing of Emergency Mobile Trailer Units (EMTU) is probably the most important. EMTUís are used 42-53í trailers
converted into temporary living quarters for 10-12 people. These units are designed to provide immediate shelter for victims of a disaster or
responding emergency crews. EMTUís are specifically designed and strategically located so that they can be dispatched and onsite within 8-12 hours
of a disaster situation.
Procurement, management, and positioning of all NERT equipment is a sizable task for this department. Most equipment positioning is donated by
common truck carriers and drivers across the country.
