What is a command cabinet?

Emergency Responder Cabinet Systems

Mission based command cabinets

A command cabinet is a vehicle cabinet system that is designed to hold equipment and materials specific to any given mission. Each mission has its specific needs and the command cabinet is designed to meet those needs of the mission.  Primarily, command cabinets are used for emergency services but can be customized for industrial uses.

Custom Command Cabinets

Command cabinets need to fulfill the mission in which they are designed for and therefore it is important to speak with a specialist.

Emergency Services Command Cabinets

Emergency services can be Law Enforcement and Security Personnel and First Responders like Fire & Rescue, EMS and Paramedics.
Fire command cabinets can contain command boards and multiple radios to coordinate emergency operations as well as contain compartments for gear storage and emergency equipment. The command board can be either plexi glass or whiteboard depending on the preference of the commander and practice of the fire dept. If the fire dept has a command map they use, a plexi glass command board is a good option. The map fits under the glass and the commander can write on the plexi and erase and write again. If there is not standard fire map, a whiteboard command board is the way to go. This option allows the commander to write his own set of directives over and over again. Space for a SCBA bracket is also something you would see in a fire command cabinet.
Law Enforcement and Police/SWAT command cabinets typically include radio communications and equipment storage, but many times they also contain a weapons locker. Weapons lockers are secured combo locking drawers where law enforcement officers can store their weapons during transit and until they need them.
