Hackney’s line of homeland security vehicles covers a wide range of body designs for all types of disaster preparedness and response. These range from fully integrated small to large platform command and communications vehicles, to EOD response, to training labs.
Command & Communications
Command and Communications vehicles are an essential element to well managed disasters and incident control. Hackney offers a wide variety of platforms to meet the agencies specific requirements and budgets.
Body lengths range from 14-ft on a Ford F550 or International TerraStar to 30-ft models on HME or Spartan custom cabs.
All interiors feature aluminum cabinetry with full-length finger release latches. Colors may be specified. Floor is rubberized, anti-slip seamless. Counter tops and desks are solid-surface with rounded bullnose edges. Walls and ceilings may be covered with noise reduction pile carpet or white ABS.
Conference centers are isolated from traffic by sliding pocket doors. Interiors may be custom designed with table lengths based on number of occupants. Seating may be bench with storage or individual roller chairs. Side walls can be configured with cabinets, windows, or whiteboards. Slide-out walls are available where additional work space is required. Conference rooms are heated and cooled by redundant air duct discharges and return vents, so individual rooms remain comfortable even when the pocket doors are closed. Note pop-up receptacles in table top for AC power, Ethernet and HDMI connections.
Work stations are configured based on customer preference with fixed computer workstations or laptops. Ethernet and HDMI ports are strategically located along the wall. Work stations can be installed in slide-out walls for increased work space.
Slide-out rooms are automatically deployed and stowed by pneumatic controls by depressing a single button. Floors do not allow ambient air into the room when deployed.
Storage cabinet faces can be powder-coated to match interior color scheme or finished with a white marker board surface. Mounting rails for monitors and other electronic equipment can be specified above all desk and work surfaces. Slide-out drawers with or without locks are available for routine storage or filing cabinet configuration.
Personnel access to the interior is provided by drop-down steps. Picture at right shows steps stowed.
Also shown on right is the generator compartment with air intake vents.
Ramps may be added to move wheeled equipment in and out of the interior. Ramps are stored in trays beneath the floor on the side or out the rear of the body.
Regardless of the specified use for the interior of all Hackney Command Series Bodies, chances are it can be accommodated. Shown here is a clinical simulation training lab with identical rooms on each end of the vehicle and monitoring station in the center.
Power Distribution Panel
AC and DC power terminates in a panel normally located next to the entrance door. The generator to shorepower transfer switch is conveniently located at the top of the panel along with individual breaker switches below and digital voltmeter and ammeter. DC breaker with digital volt and ammeter are located below. All switches are labeled and backlighted. Note generator remote start switch, individual room thermostats, room deployment switch and CO monitor are also conveniently accessible in the same location.
