A mobile command post vehicle provides a main workspace and storage space for equipment (such as a bus, trailer, or van). They will often be equipped with the same technology as a central office because they need to function at the same level as a central office. Simply put, you are deploying your main office on the road.
Which Benefits Do You Get?
Those who use mobile command centres should be aware of the many benefits they provide, including increased productivity and opportunities that would otherwise be unavailable to them.
Here are a few of them.
● Reduced Reply Time
Especially for law enforcement and emergency response agencies, mobile command centres offer the benefit of reducing response times. A mobile command centre, for instance, can provide immediate treatment to those affected by natural disasters rather than transporting them. These centres also maintain everything needed by workers so that they can perform their duties effectively. Oftentimes, minutes can mean the difference between an emergency being handled properly and a tragedy. Therefore, every second counts. This applies not only to emergencies and crimes but also to businesses. The more time you save, the more revenue you can generate. A mobile command centre is often worth the investment for companies that can handle a large number of clients in one day.
● Easily Available
In the field, however, there is only so much equipment available. Surveillance operations, for example, often require extensive technology and equipment in order to be successful. These items may need to remain at the site for days (or even weeks) at a time. For example, if an area has a high crime rate or is a terrorist target, the equipment may need to remain there for that amount of time. MCCs give you the convenience of bringing the full force of your facility to a separate facility, allowing you to undertake operations you otherwise could not possibly conduct. Also, you might be able to operate in less-favoured geographic areas such as rural areas or low-income neighbourhoods.
● The scene of the crime
Mobile command centres can be extremely useful in event security, for instance, since they allow the security team to effectively monitor the event from a remote location. This will provide considerable convenience for your operations, but it will also discourage potential criminals. Preventing crime from the start is always the best way to enhance security.
Using the above example, a single MCC might be able to provide the following benefit:
-Investigations at the scene can be conducted using a mobile crime lab
-Communicate quickly and clearly with other units by becoming a hub
-Assist in medical treatment in a mobile setting
-Thousands of people are living in an area that needs to be inspected
If any of these responsibilities are assigned to your business, make sure to take this into account.
● Your Equipment Is Protected
Without a mobile command post vehicle, you’re often restricted to what you can take with you in the field because the equipment is often expensive. An MCC can serve both as a shelter for equipment and enable that equipment to be used. For example, weather, size and weight, and power needs are common obstacles that businesses must face. Oftentimes, your MCC functions as a remote office as well, thereby eliminating the need to go outside in the first place. Additionally, its spaciousness will enable you to keep all your equipment in one place since you won’t have to transport it in multiple ways. It is also beneficial to protect your equipment during use since many factors can cause damage (or theft) to your equipment.
