The City of Imperial recently purchased their first Mobile Command Unit. In hopes of helping aid the community and decrease crime rate, the City fully equipped their vehicle with up to date technology. The Mobile Command Vehicle hosts three separate quarters: the Conference/Planning Room, Dispatch Center and Galley. The Conference/Planning Room embraces one Flat Floor Power Slide-Out that contains four workstations with overhead cabinets. A large conference table is positioned off the center room to accommodate space availability. Two electronic equipment storage closets with racks contain small volt fans for ventilation. A mounted DVD/VCR along with a 32” LCD Display Monitor complete the room.
The dispatch center consists of another Power Slide-Out with built-in two drawer file cabinets along with workstations. The center is adorned with aluminum mini-blinds and laminate valances. A 26” LCD HDTV mounted onto the rear wall finishes the look of the room.
The Galley Area includes a stainless steel sink with a Gooseneck faucet, a built-in Microwave, Norcold Refrigerator and under cabinet Coffee Maker. All these accessories help the Operations Team to be more accessible while on the job.
When the City of San Bernardino needed a new command vehicle it was no surprise they turned to Universal Specialty Vehicles, Inc. Universal and the City of San Bernardino have a long history of working together. As soon as Universal was asked to build this unit they began working meticulously to meet all of San Bernardino’s specifications. The end result was a state of the art 36’ Mobile Command Vehicle.
The City of Manhattan Beach recently received a generous donation for an Emergency Mobile Command Unit from the Manhattan Beach Property Owners’ Association. The MBPOA formed in 1939 and since then has lead campaigns to help the community build new schools, a new fire station, a new post office and a branch of the county library. On top of that the association formed the first concert orchestra in the South Bay. Last year MBPOA sold a property at Bell and Rosecrans Avenue which it had owned since the 1940’s. The association took the funds they received for the property and donated it to several projects which include: remodeling the Manhattan Beach Middle School music room, an oceanographic teaching station vehicle for the Roadhouse Aquarium, and the biggest project they funded was creating a mobile command unit for the Manhattan Beach Police Department.
