Command and Control -- New Castle County, DE (USA)

I photographed this newly-delivered command and control unit during a 5-alarm fire in Delaware. It responds to all multi-alarm blazes and haz-mat incidents in the county of New Castle. Notice that the rig boasts a 2 metre extension that is deployed once it is positioned. This ECU is shared among 32 fire stations which serve a population of 525,587 in an area of 500 square miles.

It looks like a Utilimaster body (I'm guessing from the front windows); it's hard to guess what's underneath. Many vehicles like this are on Freightliner chassis.
