The Bladen County Sheriff’s Office and Emergency Services recently
received a utility trailer through a Homeland Security Grant and the North
Carolina Emergency Management Domestic Preparedness Program.
The utility trailer will be used as a Mobile Command Post in the event of
natural disasters such as hurricanes and tornados, missing persons,
manhunts, fire investigations, emergency medical events , homicides, and
much more.

The Command Post was recently stripped with the Sheriff’s Office and
Emergency Services logo and has been put into service.

“We are pleased to have this piece of equipment that can be used for so
many things and sharing it with Emergency Services is such a cost effective
approach for the county, “said Sheriff Jim McVicker.
