Missouri Mobile EOC Capabilities Description

Vehicle
Chassis

40' foot long, 38-thousand pound, two slide-outs, travel height of 14 feet.
Crew

The unit is deployed with a nominal crew of four personnel (1 COML, and 3 COMT) who are trained in the setup, deployment and maintenance of the vehicle.    A larger crew or a security detachment can be added as conditions warrant.  Crew members are also practitioners in various other emergency response disciplines such as EMS, Fire, Haz-Mat and Communications.  All have basic to advanced ICS training.

All MOSWIN enabled radios on the MEOC are equipped to access the MOSWIN network Statewide and Regional Interoperability talkgroups. All Non-MOSWIN radios are equipped with conventional analog interoperability channels as default. Incident Commanders should expect to use existing Regional or interoperable talkgroups.  Agency-specific talkgroups cannot be programmed onto our equipment.

All on-system radio traffic is recorded for archival purposes.

Remote sites without IP (Internet) connectivity options will require use of Missouri National Guard Video Services unit bridging capabilities.  Contact MONG HQ Video Services unit to pre-qualify and establish connectivity.

Equipment

Antenna Mast



Fifty-six foot telescoping mast capable of supporting up to four antennas when deployed.  

All-band, omni-directional High-band VHF, Lo-Band VHF, UHF and Amateur VHF/UHF/HF antennas are carried on-board.  Requesting agency will provide other antennas as needed.

Equipment
Power Generation

Primary generator is 20KW diesel that drafts fuel from primary vehicle fuel tanks.  100 gallons of fuel is on-board when vehicle is full.  System can be deployed for approximately 3 days within 100 miles without requiring refueling.

Alternate generator is 15KW PTO-driven hydraulic generator.  This generator requires that main vehicle engine be running. 

Either generator (selected based upon need) provides power for all on-board systems. 

MEOC can also be powered via external means through a 50 foot long 60amp or 100amp Pin & Sleeve connector.  Requesting agency provides appropriate receptacle.  MEOC requires at least 60 amps @ 240V.

MEOC can provide up to 60 amps @ 240V of power to external structures through externally accessible cam lock type connectors.  Requesting agency provides electrician and materials to complete connection.  Power is provided from either on-board generator.

All core on-board systems are power protected through Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) systems.
