If a natural disaster would hit our area, Michiana is better prepared.
Tuesday, Saint Joseph County's Clay Fire unveiled their new state of the art mobile incident command unit.
The vehicle features a weather station, satellite and internet access, and capability to print large-scale maps.
The vehicle will be used for events such as natural disasters, major fires, or crowd control. “For a major incident, the bigger the incident, the bigger the need for the command approach. A lot more resources at our fingertips than we ever had before,” explains Clay Fire Chief Tim Schabbel.
The $500,000.00 price tag for the high tech unit was funded through several homeland security grants.
