  • Dream Command Vehicle

    If you could build a custom command vehicle for your department what would it be? What cool stuff would you put in it? Would you want a poly coated rear cabinet or fiberglass? etc. The sky is the limit, let me hear your ideas.

      Decent heat and air conditioning, a computer or two, plenty of scene lighting (including a light tower), video camera and a thermal camera on extendable masts with a good quality screen to view them on, a computerized accountability system, hydraulic generator, dry-erase board, proper radio equipment with a REALLY good antenna(s), refridgerator, microwave, bathroom, an on-board SCBA compressor system, sattelite phone system.... and a jacuzzi.

        One that was stationary and could not be removed from the Administrative offices so all the Admin Chiefs could not show up and try to put the fires out with all the books they carry.

        Management is making sure things are done right. Leadership is doing the right thing. The fire service needs alot more leaders and a lot less managers.

        "Everyone goes home" is the mantra for the pussification of the modern, American fire service.


        Comments made are my own. They do not represent the official position or opinion of the Fire Department or the City for which I am employed. In fact, they are normally exactly the opposite.

          Don't forget the hardware to padlock the door from the outside.

            One with all the small equipment that stays loaded, it sucks loading all the electronics. Tracvision satellite dish and an internet connection either satellite or aircard. Fridge, mircrowave, coffee pot, and a jacuzzi!

              How in the hell did fires ever go out before command vehicles? If you have this kind of cheese to spend, hire some guys or buy some actual firefighting apparatus.

                Keep in mind, these vehicles are not just used at fires. Tornados, hurricanes, earthquakes, public events... there is definitely a need for these types of trucks.

                  Yes a place to keep staff officers dry, warm and out of the way.

                  Plus the police got one so we need one.

                    Agree 100% with Tim1118. We use ours alot at multi alarm fires and hazmat incidents. As well, in tornado alley, we use it as needed. For the public events, such as the College World series, it is a useful tool as a command structure.

                      Lots of good thoughts. I can't add too much, except a communications bridge such as an ACU, and a crapper.

                      Yep - an often overlooked item. A pooper. The electric ones require very little maintenance over a system with a holding tank.

                      I think much better after a good poop.

                      That said, how many people have a plan for multiple poopers at a major incident that may last days?

                      No, really - I am serious.

                        Nobody mentioned the stripper pole?

                          A new chief, because one that gets his rocks off on a fancy command vehicle is probably not a very good fireground officer.
