Emergency Response Unit Key To Crisis Management

(Lafayette, LA) - The blowout of a natural gas rig in near Indian Bayou has caused hardship for local residents and created concern for emergency officials for several days. While working to cap the well and control natural gas leaking into the environment, officials could be assured of constant, reliable communications.

Lafayette-based SOLA Communications has been at the site of the blowout, providing mobile broadband and first responder applications through its Emergency Response Unit (ERU). Within an hour of being notified about the accident, SOLA's ERU was set up and providing emergency personnel with wireless communication, internet and closed circuit cameras. The closed circuit cameras are able to capture the activities on and around the well.

SOLA's quick deployable transportable unit is perfectly suited for rapid response situations. It's designed to be set up and operational within 30 minutes by a single operator. This sturdy single axle trailer is customized with state-of-the-art satellite communications equipment to meet communication needs in an emergency situation. The environmentally controlled equipment shelter and wind loading stabilization make this unit versatile in almost any work environment.

"Helping to provide critical services in an emergency is a vital reason we are in the business we're in", stated SOLA CEO Gordon D. Rice. "Disasters require instant response and the best technology available. SOLA has the proven ability to meet the communications' needs of emergency crews."

Having served the communications' needs of municipal and law enforcement communities for years, SOLA's products also played a key role at the site of 9/11 World Trade Center disaster. It was during this important effort of providing services to supplement the overly taxed terrestrial phone system, that the need for an ERU was recognized.

A stand alone mobile command center, the ERU is equipped with everything required to handle the communication needs of an emergency response site including wireless communication, internet, VPN, and remote access and remote control digital camera.
