In 1987, ZUMRO INCORPORATED introduced an original Decontamination Air Shelter to the United States.
This “rapid deployable” shelter system had not been marketed in the USA so ZUMRO introduced this new concept and product into the Fire and Rescue market. The “DECON SHELTER” as it is now known, has become an integral part of Hazmat and Fire Rescue Teams concerned with on-the-scene decontamination.
In 1993 ZUMRO introduced the much larger “EMERGENCY SHELTER” for the growing demand for shelter use operations beyond just decontamination. The Emergency Shelter earned recognition quickly due to its popularity with FEMA-sponsored deployable USAR teams.
In 1998 the threat of domestic Chemical & Biological Terrorism brought a high demand for rapid deployable Mass Decontamination Systems. The unique design of the Emergency Shelter allowed for extensive custom work to fill this need.
ZUMRO Shelters are now available in 9 sizes, 8 colors and countless custom-tailored configurations. The ability to customize ZUMRO Air Shelters has made them the most popular Inflatable Air Shelter for Fire Departments, Hospitals, EMS, EMA, Military and Law Enforcement services in Canada, the United States and worldwide.
