In an effort to support the school site in establishing an incident command system, CUSD had developed a mobile command unit. This vehicle can be deployed to any school site in CUSD within one half hour. The vehicle contains:
- Hard copies and CDS of the school safety plans
- Maps and floor plans of all school sites and neighboring areas
- Generator, lights, tables, chairs, and canopies
- Mass casualty bags, water, bullhorns, and signs
The mobile command unit is a resource for school sites. It is not meant to replace supplies that should be housed at the site. The team member(s) deployed with the mobile command are experts in safety/NIMS. This team does not take over command from the principal, but supports the principal by guiding them through the crisis and working as a liaison with law enforcement/fire.
