Emergency Services Awnings – The 3 crucial features needed to make all the difference

Responding to an emergency such as an RTA or crime scene is challenging enough without the added worry of finding a sheltered area for the team to hold their de-briefing or space for the team to work from. Emergency services rapid response units often require a controlled environment to protect and gather evidence before other teams arrive, so the ideal solution is to have a vehicle awning that can quickly be utilised when responders arrive at the scene.

There are many benefits to using awnings on rapid response units including:


Fast deployment

Time is critical in an emergency, so using an awning that can be quickly setup is a key priority. The design team at The Awning Company has spent the last 30 years regularly developing new innovative awning designs specifically for situations such as responding to emergencies. We are proud to provide the most reliable and easy to deploy structures for the situations when every second counts.

Our Frontier Windout awnings are fitted with our Twin Kedar Seal-R winding system, allowing one person to erect the awning on their own if needed. Suitable for vans of short and long wheelbases the awning comes in a range of projections with heavy-duty legs, base frame kit for hard standing and vehicle skirt as standard.

Additional space

When you are responding to an emergency, the location could be on a major road or somewhere public that is busy with pedestrians. Being able to quickly set up a private area will ensure that evidence can be gathered in a controlled environment. The additional space provided by an awning can be used for holding de-briefings and the strong, waterproof structure ensures protection from the weather.
