The Reeves Incident Command Post (ICP) is described by the company as a complete command solution for fire rescue professionals to mobilize an interoperable incident command post quickly and efficiently.

The trailer and shelter combination allows an incident commander to establish a fully equipped command post through which fire rescue personnel can communicate with each other regardless of differences in equipment and hardware, the company said.

With a starting weight of less than 3,000 pounds and 18 inches of ground clearance, the ICP can be towed behind most vehicles, allowing for travel anywhere, including off road, according to the company, which said gas mileage is better than using larger command trailers.

The Reeves ICP shelter design uses the same materials as the Deployable Rapid Assembly Shelter (DRASH) system that has been used extensively by the military for more than 20 years. 

The shelter’s durable structure has been tested to withstand gusts of wind up to 65 mph, as well as free falling and blowing rain without intrusion of water, the company said.

The ICP Trailer System offers multiple interoperability packages that can be configured to meet individual needs. Optional packages include satellite communications, Internet access and an integrated command and control system.

“The unique configuration of the system allows for interoperability between first responders, no matter what their radio bandwidth,” said Reeves ICP Product Manager Mark Tallo.
Reeves EMS was acquired in 2005 by DHS Systems LLC, which has continued the brand’s legacy of quality emergency medical products and accessories.
