Charlotte Fire Department (NC) Mobile Command Center

This custom mobile command center is built on a Freightliner M2 106 conventional cab chassis and features a Cummins L9 350EV HP diesel engine with an Allison 3000 EVS automatic transmission with PTO provision. The all aluminum body features four of our in-house fabricated flat floor slide-outs to maximize the available interior workspace. We also added our Intel-I-Touch™ vehicle automation system to simplify to start-up and shut down of the vehicle on scene. The command center also has one touch vehicle leveling to stabilize it while deployed. We custom fabricated a weatherproof exterior workstation and integrated it into the curbside rear slide-out. There is also an electronics charging station in the curbside front slide-out as well. Extreme Duty body storage boxes were added to the body for additional gear storage. A complete emergency lighting and siren package was also installed on the command center.

Entry into the vehicle is by dual curbside entry doors. The front room is a small work room with dual workstations, each with a spider base task chair. Magnetic surface dry erase white boards are utilized throughout along with custom fabricated aluminum cabinetry. Overhead cabinets have dry erase writing surface. Magnetic soft closure pocket doors (2) are utilized to create private work rooms throughout the vehicle. The work rooms have 24″ display monitors as well. A large electronics rack is utilized to house all of the installed gear. A slide out printer tray is also included. An overhead cabinet houses radio chargers. The rear room has a center conference table with spider base task seating (8), flip down bench seats and a corner workstation. We prewired the command center for customer communication radios. We mounted a 65″ touch screen monitor on the rear wall. There is also a fold up table on the streetside wall.

Additional features include: FRC InView 360HD full vehicle monitoring system with a 7″ display monitor and blackout curtains for all interior windows. A small galley in the front room with a microwave and refrigerator is also included. Solid surface counter tops are utilized throughout the vehicle interior. We added a 25kW liquid cooled diesel generator in a custom fabricated generator housing to supply plenty of electric power to the command center. All of the installed electronics are protected by a full vehicle surge suppression system. Four ducted low profile rooftop A/C units have been installed to handle HVAC duties along with wall mounted electric heaters. LED lighting is installed throughout the vehicle. Six perimeter IP cameras are installed for situational awareness. A digital HDTV antenna, HDMI video matrix switcher and Extron video control panel are also installed.
