Command vehicles according to ICAO

A mobile office at the airport

One command wagon (ELW/ELF) supports during the tactical coordination of units for fire fighting and during disaster operations. Aircraft accidents mostly occur at the end or start of the runways as well as on the taxiways. A mobile command center on location is necessary to perform rapid explorations and to ensure coordination with headquarters in the tower. The operational commanders will find the right equipment in the interior of the command vehicle to optimally cooperate with other units in emergency situations.
