Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service has helped to design Britain's first mobile field hospital.
The tent-based facility would be used in disaster zones. It can be transformed into a medical centre with 40 beds for up to 90 days. The UK has become the sixth country to have a mobile field hospital.
According to Robin Bates from Urban Search & Rescue (USAR) who was the project section leader in charge of accommodation and logistics, the facility is impressive.
More than 30 firefighters spent the night tackling a fire at two barns in Barton Stacey near Andover. Hampshire Fire & Rescue Service sent six fire engines and water carriers on the evening of Thursday 29th December.

It is believed that a coffee machine was the cause of a fire which has destroyed part of the Fleet Services petrol station complex on the M3.
It took more than fifty firefighters most of last night to fight the flames which it was feared would spread to a hotel and petrol station.
The fire is thought to have started in the KFC restaurant at the site - on the southbound side of the motorway at 10:30pm. A dozen staff were evacuated but no-one was injured. Most of the building has been destroyed.
Firefighters say that if the fire had happened at any other time of day then lives could have been lost. Richard Slee reports.
All lanes of the M3 southbound have been reopened after the overnight fire at Fleet Service station. Fire crews remain at the scene damping down. However the service station area and the fuel station remain closed.

The Fleet service station area remains closed and there is slow traffic in the area. The fire broke out in the service station's food court at around 10.30pm last night.
The fire is under control and firefighters are damping down the area damaged by the blaze to make it safe.
