TOWSON, Md. — You might have noticed tents set up outside some hospitals in the area.

That includes the university of Maryland St. Joseph Medical Towson. The one out front of the hospital -- screens patients as they come in.

The others are there in case the hospital reaches capacity. There's air-conditioning, good lighting and flooring. All the tents were supplied by the Baltimore Tent Company.

"Since all the weddings canceled, all the festivals have canceled, all graduation parties are off, we are grateful for the work and we're grateful to help out these heroes and angels that are working in these hospitals," said Dave Larkin from Baltimore Tent Company.

Dave hopes his company can help out other hospitals in the area.
