With our partner Optima Technic, we can construct custom command unit trailers. The mobility of a self-contained extendable trailer allows for the trailer to be inserted wherever it may be needed most. The following are some of the most important factors of our integrated mobile command vehicle.
Our mobile command unit trailers have the capability of interoperable communications across any and all frequencies. It is extremely important for this cross-communication and the use of plain language in lieu of ten-codes. Because of factors outside of control, there should also be redundant voice and data communications. This should include the use of satellite VoIP, cellular and landline connectivity. A well-equipped communications console will allow for dispatch and control over all radio traffic on-scene as opposed to off-site centralized dispatch.
Our command unit trailers have access to satellite television for important weather and news coverage. A telescopic mast with a camera allows for outer perimeter vehicle placement without the loss of incident monitoring. Tying this equipment into a video distribution system connected to all monitors, DVD or DVR’s and patched into a SMART or other brand electronic copy board will greatly improve after-action analysis and debriefing.
In order to allow for critical incident management, our mobile command center have a comfortable and functional conference area. The introduction of NIMS/ICS brought major changes to the way natural and man-made disasters are managed.
Most notably, there is a greater priority placed on bringing other functional areas into the briefings. Today’s hurricane response unit may very well have someone from law enforcement, fire, emergency management, military, budget & planning, department of transportation or any other areas that may need consideration.
