Mobile Command Centers - Alaskan Command Center
A properly equipped Mobile Command Center is a Response and Recovery Vehicle that facilitates an Agency's ability to expand their Command and Control capabilities to a remote location. Full Interoperable Communications are a standard for the Mobile Command Center.
For the Emergency Management Agency, the vehicle is an extension of the fixed base Emergency Operations Center. The vehicle should be built with long-term deployment in mind but also be easy to operate in order to allow for quick deployment by minimum personnel if necessary. The successful design of a Mobile Command Center will dictate the frequency of use. In other words, the more difficult to move and operate, the fewer deployments.
