Lake County's EOD response unit is much more than your typical EOD truck with robot and equipment storage. Built on a Freightliner MT-55 forward control chassis, some of its features include a winch mounted to the front bumper and a manually operator exterior entrance step.
This unit can be deployed as a mobile communications unit featuring two workstations in the front of the unit as well as additional seating for two. Custom-fabricated aluminum cabinets and countertops allow for extra storage. A FRP covered pocket door provides privacy between the cab and work area when needed. Fixed bench seating with seat belts and removable cushions provide additional seating and storage space in one. A bi-fold aluminum collapsible fold-out ramp provides easy deployment of Lake County’s bomb robot. The rear of the vehicle also features large box pan shelves, hanging storage for bomb suits, and large item storage.
A black aluminum roll-up door has been installed at the rear of the vehicle for deployment of the ramp and department’s bomb robot. For coverage from inclement weather, a manual solid color awning has been added to the curbside of the vehicle. On the rear of the vehicle is a heavy-duty non-locking telescoping pneumatic mast with a camera. Around the exterior of the vehicle are telescoping remote angle light poles and telescoping tripod light poles. For electric power a 12-kW generator in a custom-fabricated all-aluminum compartment has been installed.
