MERC Mobile Emergency Response Center
The CCS MERC registered trademark represents a custom built line of mobile power and communication trailers that are designed to provide a fully operational voice, data, and radio network and a climate controlled work space within 15 minutes of deployment. MERC trailers can be as small as a 16 foot bumper pull trailer or a much larger 45 foot gooseneck style trailer.
The MERC includes an on board diesel generator designed to support the trailer size and associated resources. A VSAT auto acquire satellite system allows it to offer network access anywhere in the world providing not only internet service and data access, but also Hosted VoIP and SIP service for two way voice communication. A pneumatic mast equipped with removable antenna arms provides a platform to mount antennas for land mobile radios and repeaters, cellular extender antennas, wireless LAN/WAN antennas, weather station equipment, television antennas, HAM radio antennas, and video surveillance equipment.
The interior of the MERC is designed to support multiple work stations with internal LED lighting, custom rubber flooring, metal overhead storage cabinets, equipment cabinets and racks, LED wall mounted televisions, carpeting on walls, E-Trac where needed, floor mounted recessed tie downs, kitchenettes, bathrooms, heating and ac equipment, conference room table and chairs, and many other amenities. The MERC trailers can also be built with custom slide outs to provide more interior space and exterior storage space under the trailer flooring. These trailers are sized based upon each customer’s specific requirements.
The interior of the MERC is customized based on the customer’s specific requirements. A typical build out can include conference rooms equipped with a custom table, wall mounted monitors and touchscreens, audio and video conferencing systems, VoIP telephones, led lighting, computers, and multiple power and data outlets.
Radio dispatch consoles are a common addition to a command center and these work stations can be equipped with the required headsets, dual monitor set ups, foot controls, and land mobile radios. CCS certified technicians have over 20+ years of experience in LMR integration and interoperability.
For larger command centers, CCS can install a bathroom and kitchen area which provide customers the ability to stay comfortable even during a long deployment. Tankless hot water heaters, microwave ovens, coffee pots, full size or mini-refrigerators, and ample cabinet storage have become very common place in most large command centers.
