This is a question we asked our resident expert, Steve Nash, who happens to be a battalion chief. He suggests using a Portable or Mobile Command Post for:
- ORGANIZATION - Having resources centralized and ready to go at all times is essential. At an emergency scene there is no time to hunt for the basic tools an Incident Commander requires.
- VISIBILTY - The Halcyon Mobile Command Post (or, MCP) provides a centralized visual presence that conveys command and control.
- PORTABILITY - The MCP allows Company Officers the flexibility to set up virtual office practically anywhere a Division Leader, Sector Officer or Incident Commander deems necessary.
