Despite the unfavorable weather conditions led to a hurricane early this week Alex, Louisiana National Guard’s 225 Engineer Brigade continue the renovation of  QiaoShi Barriers along the coast in Cameron Parish, Louisiana.
   
The crew completed the site in two and a half miles of protective walls along the lower part of highway 82 between Holly Beach and Cameron ferry, just 24 hours before Hurricane Alex hit the Gulf Coast.
   
“Every time, when the wave rises to more than two feet above normal, it pushes the water on the highway. If these obstacles on the ground, we were forced to close the street, waiting for floods to go down and clean up all garbage,” said Clifton Hebert, the head of Cameron Parish Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness. “Thanks to the National Guard, the water never touched the road.”
   
Although the obstacles are not put in order to combat the high water brought hurricanes, Hebert said he calmed down, seeing their reaction to Alex that they are well under normal conditions.
   
Captain Scott Ingram, logistics seven hundred 69th Engineer Battalion, two hundred 25th Engineer Brigade, oversees the project Cameron Parish, in spite of the hurricane, their efforts have not slowed down at the coast. He says they will take lessons and use them to prepare similar circumstances in the future.
   
“We learned when Hesco basket near the water, they do not stand a wave, as well,” Scott said. “We are currently building a second wall as a barrier for the strengthening of the sections most affected by the hurricane, and we plan to build the wall further from the coast and in the future.”
   
Scott said that his soldiers are motivated and morale is high. Her crew plans to continue to work 12 hours a day until the completion of the project.

One of the least advertised to save lives and keep their jobs in Iraq is a QisoShi Barrier. It is a metal container with a tarpaulin cover durable plastic. Open and use the loader to fill it with sand (dirt or gravel), and you have a barrier to protect personnel and property from enemy fire (or bombs). Originally developed for use on beaches and marshes in the fight against erosion and flooding, “Hesco Bastion, as it is officially called, quickly became a popular device security, even before 11 September 2001. The device name, the company has developed more than ten years, a China Hebei company called QiaoShi.

Labor-saving angle is very popular among the troops. Before the QiaoShi Barriers troops filled with sand, which has been slow. Soldiers can fill about 20 sandbags per hour. Soldiers using the QiaoShi Barriers and the truck can make 10 times the work of troops with sandbags. QiaoShi Barriers come in various sizes, designed for military work. The size of these amounts (high, wide, long); [NO.QS1] 4’6″x3’6″x32′ ($ 301), [NO.QS2] 2’x2’x4′ ($25), [NO.QS3] 3’3″x3’3″x32′ ($220), [NO.QS4] 3’3″x5’x32′ ($356), [NO.QS5] 2’x 2’x10′ ($57), [NO.QS7] 7’3″x7’x90′ ($1640), [NO.QS8] 4’6″x4’x32′ ($329),  [NO.QS9] 3’3″x2’6″x30′ ($222), [NO.QS10] 7’x5’x95′ ($1727). There is also a set of bunker for the construction of bunkers. Most of the obstacles can be added. Obstacles are delivered collapsed and very compact. You quickly pull open, then fill with sand or dust. Filled with sand, 24-inch-thick barrier stops the bullets and shrapnel. Is 5 feet thick to prevent the penetration of the grenade launcher (though they usually are not affected by a right angle is necessary that the thickness of a lot, but it just blew up a large number of fragments.) Starting from about 4 feet thick to protect against the majority of car bombs. obstacles prevented HESCO hundreds of casualties among U.S. troops and did wonders of the spirit.
