Recently, Cebotec delivered the first of two Mobile Interactive Multi Media Information Units to Strathclyde Fire and Rescue, Community Fire Safety. Working closely with Robert Brown, Strathclyde Fire and Rescue’s Fleet Manager, each vehicle has an 8m body with twin, hydraulically operated, expanding pods that provide an extended floor space of around 25sqm when deployed. An onboard whisper generator provides the power necessary to support the educational and public awareness function via a bank of eight wall mounted computer stations and a 40in LCD monitor. Air conditioning with separate heating element, a thermostatically controlled diesel powered heating system and Cat2 electric lighting ensures the vehicles, which are wheelchair accessible, remain suitable for business at any time of the year.
The Mobile Community Safety Centres have been fitted out with extendable sides so that they can seat eight people at PC consoles or host audiences of 30 for lectures on issues such as fire and road safety.
The vehicles, each costing over £150,000, carry large, dramatic fire safety warnings along their sides. Very soon, the vehicles will become a familiar sight at schools and public events.
