Dickinson Co Supervisors Considering Request From Emergency Management For Purchase Of New Mobile Command Unit

Sat 2-17-2018

            (Spirit Lake)-- A new mobile command unit may be in the works for Dickinson County Emergency Management.

            Emergency Management Coordinator Mike Ehret presented a quote at Tuesday's board of supervisors meeting for a new 33 foot unit that would house a portable communications center, work station, radios, restrooms, a kitchenette and a rehabilitation and first aid area. The new unit has a price tag of $35,115. Some of the smaller equipment in the present unit would remain in that trailer.

The supervisors stopped short of approving the purchase, requesting Ehret to research possible places to store the new unit first.
