TOWN OF OYSTER BAY
Oyster Bay, New York
Model CM2400 Command & Communications
The Town of Oyster Bay, located on Long Island, has purchased a command and communications vehicle from Hackney to serve as a regional response team in Nassau County. The vehicle, sold by L.I. Proliner, features a 24-ft all-aluminum modular body mounted on an International 4400 cab/chassis with 330-hp MaxxForce 9 diesel and Allison 3000EVS 6-speedautomatic.
An 8-foot wide slide-out room is integrated into the left side of the body substantially expanding the forward interior communications work zone. The room is activated by simply depressing a single button next to the entrance door and is deployed or stowed in under 5-seconds automatically. The entire interior is lined with sound-absorbing rib-patterned carpet. The floor is covered with seamless Lonseal anti-slip rubber safety flooring.
All interior cabinetry is formed aluminum with a durable powder-coated finish. Door handles are full cabinet length pivoting type that can be opened with gloved hands at any point along the length of the handle. Counter-tops, conference table and comms work station are 1-1/4" thick solid-surface type with rounded bull-nose edges. The entire interior is designed to eliminate surface chipping . The three roof mounted air conditioner units are integrated into a single air distribution network to provide system redundancy and balanced cooling throughout the interior through multi-directional air distribution louvers.
A 20kw Kohler diesel generator provides ample power for all environmental, lighting and power distribution systems. The exterior perimeter is lighted by a pneumatic light tower with six (6) 900-watt MagnaFire flood lights that are omni-directional. Additional flood lighting is provided with 900-watt MagnaFire's on the upper left and right side body and one on the rear body, plus Whelen 12VDC halogen scene lights. An interlock system prevents the vehicle from moving when towers, stabilizers and room are deployed.
An auxiliary power supply is provided for the electronics through an isolated battery system with separate 90-amp power converter and battery charger. Batteries are gel deep cycle type.
The color, low-lumen camera mounted on the tower feeds live video to a 42" monitor in the conference room and forward communi-cations room. Video is captured by a DVR. A galley provides microwave oven, refrigerator and coffeemaker. A separate isolated room provides toilet facilities and lavatory.
The vehicle is fully multiplexed and includes a NFPA 1901 emergency response LED warning light package.
