Since Hurricane Katrina in 2005, the University of Mississippi Medical Center, the Mississippi Department of Health (MSDH) and the Mississippi Emergency Management Agency (MEMA) have strived to be as prepared as possible for a natural or man-made disaster.

According to their website, The Mississippi Center for Emergency Services was created to expand Mississippi’s ability to maintain medical services during unanticipated events across Mississippi. E. Cornell Malone Corporation’s roofing and metal divisions were able to help this project come to life.

First, let’s take a look at this project from the roofing side. Malone roofers loose laid two layers of 2.2” ISO, then mechanically attached a 19/32” OSB cover board.
