OPERATIONAL COMPLETION DATE: SEPTEMBER 8, 2005

PERSONNEL SUPPORTED: 3000 MEN WITH NEW PERSONNEL ROTATING IN

PROJECT NOTES: This camp was a major staging and storm restoration camp to support both vegetation removal and electrical lineman crews fanning out in a 100 mile radius of Beaumont, Texas. Crews came in from all over the US and were constantly being rotated out for new crews. RAS was initially contracted to provide only the shelters with HVAC and power. Lamar University stadium was chosen not only for its centrally located position but also its parking area and stadium amenities – mainly showers. However, Beaumont, Texas was under Marshall Law and without power so RAS was contracted to place a 1MW generator to power the main camp area – stadium included. This camp was the longest running camp for the 2005 season – 3.5 months.
