Emergency Management

Telescopic Tower Solutions for Emergency Management

Aluma Tower produces a variety of emergency response trailer towers designed for use by emergency management agencies and various law enforcement, fire and EMS personnel. Our emergency response trailers are disaster relief cell towers on wheels that are towable or transportable by air. All of our products deliver the quality of permanent equipment with the convenience of a compact portable system.

Portable Emergency Response Trailer Towers With Equipment Shelters

Our portable communications trailers for emergency management are versatile systems used by departments of all sizes worldwide. They are ideal for mobile command posts and emergency communication centers for agencies coordinating disaster response. While advanced in design, all of our Cell-on-Wheels (COW) systems are user-friendly. Two people can deploy them from stowed to operational in under 15 minutes, or one person can set them up in 30 minutes.

S6 Trailer Towers with Shelter

The S6 is the smallest of our emergency response systems and the most economical option. This compact system mounts to a Class IV hitch, allowing it to be towed into place by most full-size pickups and SUVs.

S8 Hybrid Emergency Response Trailer

The S8 Hybrid integrated disaster relief cell tower is a portable communications tower with a shelter that is an ample eight ft in height.  It features the same oversized trailer as our S812 model for an extra four ft of space in the front.

S510 Portable Telescopic Tower with Shelter

The S510 Scorpion® is a rugged mast antenna trailer tower built to military-grade specifications. Added insulation protects the shelter, while the chassis and wheels are especially suited for rough terrain. For the versatility you require, these emergency response trailers can be coupled with any of our portable telescopic masts.

S812 Self-Supporting Tower System

The S812 is our largest and most capable portable antenna mast system. It has ample room and supports any of our unguyed and heavy-duty towers. S812 shelters have the most storage space of any we offer and can house up to nine racks of equipment.

TM 12 Small Mobile Tower

The TM-12 open style mobile trailer tower system is the smallest of our entire mobile fleet. It is available with a wide variety of options and accessories and is best suited for meteorological tower purposes, test data acquisition and other jobs that require a small, portable unit.

TM 51-20 Small Portable Tower

The 51-20 is a rugged, all-terrain mobile tower system suitable for both on and off-road portability and deployment. With good ground clearance and high mobility, this mobile trailer tower can handle just about any terrain, making for a well-rounded mobile tower unit (MTU).

TM 51-35 Open Trailer Tower

The 51-35 can be paired with any of our larger aluminum crank-up towers. It is a step up from our entry-level open trailer towers. The TM 51-35 maintains the small footprint of our more basic trailer towers but is the first to feature a dual axle.


TM 53-70 Open Trailer Tower

The Scorpion TM 53-70 is Aluma’s self-supporting tower mast system. It is a mission-ready, self-contained, lightweight mobile trailer tower unit with an all-aluminum telescoping tower that can be raised up to 106 ft (32.3 m).

TM 54-80 Mobile Tower System

The TM 54-80 line of mobile trailer tower systems provides an economic, rapid deployment mobile telescoping tower trailer system that is capable of being transported by C-130 aircraft.

TM 55-90

The TM 55-90 is a unique trailer tower system designed for low-profile applications, such as parking garages. It provides multiple storage compartments and radio equipment racks in various configurations.  This solution features our unguyed towers and is lightweight enough to be towed by a ½ ton truck or easily transported within a cargo shipping container.

Aluma Tower to Provide Relief After a Hurricane

In Florida, the threat of hurricanes is very real. Hurricane season runs from June 1st to November 30th, the peak of which occurs between mid-August and late October. While hurricanes can impact any area on the coast, 40% of those that make landfall in the United States hit Florida. Hurricanes can have a disastrous impact on the infrastructure and environment — which means having the right equipment ready to deploy at a moment’s notice is essential.

Aluma Tower’s hurricane relief equipment can easily be deployed to provide phone and internet service to areas in need after a hurricane. Communications are one of the most essential services for disaster relief management after a natural disaster. Check out how Aluma Tower can provide essential relief when hurricanes strike:

  • Weather information and alerts: Preparing for a hurricane means paying attention to weather alerts. Portable communications trailers enhance communications and connectivity, helping people on the ground get the information they need to stay safe.
  • Emergency communications: Hurricanes in Florida often come with evacuations, putting more strain on roadways and cell towers. With Aluma towers, you can ensure hurricane preparedness by establishing mobile connections that allow people in affected areas to communicate with each other and contact emergency services.
  • Emergency response coordination: Organizations ranging from worldwide nonprofits like The Red Cross, government agencies like FEMA and smaller local organizations converge when disasters strike. Aluma towers can deploy rapidly to help these organizations communicate with each other to coordinate response efforts.

Aluma Tower has a wide range of hurricane relief equipment to bring phone and internet service to affected areas after a hurricane. Larger units like the TM 53-70 can accommodate up to a 106-foot T2 series unguyed tower while still allowing for rapid deployment and easy transport via motor vehicles. Smaller towers like the TM 51-20 are easily transportable but can still stand up to rugged on- and off-road terrains.

Since rural communities may already struggle with access to mobile communications, disaster relief in these areas might be hampered without proper communication capabilities. Mobile trailer tower systems have numerous benefits for these communities after a hurricane, helping residents communicate with each other and ensuring emergency response services can do their job more efficiently.
