Bucks County Emergency Services Mobile Command Center
Bucks County Emergency Services selected a Peterbilt 348 conventional cab chassis and a 33' long custom aluminum body as the platform for their new mobile command center. The vehicle features a 350HP engine and Allison 3000 EVS automatic transmission. A 24" wide automatic steel entry step has been installed under the curbside entry door.
Four generous flat floor slide out rooms create ample space for their multi-purpose unit. This unit has a total of seven seated workstations, a standing workstation and conference seating for 6. The large front conference room with fold down bench seating on the driver's side wall and 3 workstations on the opposing wall allows for multiple different applications. The center entrance is enclosed with sliding whiteboard pocket doors on each side to partition off the front and rear as well as housing communication equipment. Two refrigerators have been installed with one for staff use and one behind a vented roll-up door to store evidence. The rear of the unit houses four workstations. This versatile design lends itself well to a range of deployments.
For staff working outside the vehicle, a weatherproof exterior compartment houses a 48" monitor audio/video input jacks, and a communications radio has been integrated into the body. A vehicle automation system automates startup and shutdown procedures as well as controlling systems such as HVAC, generators, lights, and more. HVAC is handled by three direct discharge diesel-fired furnaces and four ducted low-profile air conditioners. A 24-kW liquid-cooled diesel generator provides electric power to the vehicle when needed. To illuminate a scene during night operations, a night scan 115Vac light tower has been installed on the rear of the vehicle. Emergency lighting has also been installed around the exterior of the vehicle for high visibility when needed.

"I was very satisfied with the whole experience and process. I believe that the sales personnel and technicians are very knowledgeable and have years of institutional knowledge that shows in the execution of the unit. My questions were all ways answered immediately and if there was any reach back for additional confirmation it was always followed up with a phone call and email. The open lines of communication provided both of us the full awareness of where we were in the build process and helped eliminate unnecessary delays or unanswered questions. Everyone I encountered during my visits were always smiling and happy while working, which was great to see and experience. This is reflected in the finished product that was noticed by my staff and all others that have visited to see the new addition to our fleet."
The best feature of the vehicle is the flush floor slide-out in the front of the vehicle. It provides a very functional work area and always receives favorable comments.
The Command Vehicle enhances our team policing philosophy, and enhances our ability to carry out our mission of 'Know us BEFORE you need us.
