Employees Receive Hands-on Training in Deploying Portable Structures

The East Central District hosted a training session September 27, 2021, to familiarize employees about how to rapidly deploy portable structures for use at drive-up clinics and in environments that may be far from local health departments.

After viewing an instructional video and with direction from the vendor, DLX Deployed Logix, staff practiced hands-on the removal of bins from a trailer, and setting up of the frame, canopy and flooring of the structures. Maintenance staff joined others from a variety of disciplines and participants from the Southeastern and West Central districts in practicing matching poles to grommets.

With teamwork and planning, structures that will keep healthcare providers safely out of the elements can be deployed within one hour. Community partners will be engaged and trained on a regular basis to assist in the process of setting up the structures.
