Mobile command Unit – March 2022

In March 2022, we were asked to provide a Mobile Command Unit (MCU) to a remote, but sensitive telecommunications site in the South-West of England. The site required an effective deterrent which we were able to successfully mobilise.

Our client’s challenges.

One of our key clients requested an urgent Adhoc requirement to deploy a mobile command unit to assist on a risk site. The request’s primary function was to deploy a mobile command unit (MCU), that has the capability to facilitate a manned, but self-contained 24/7 welfare and CCTV monitoring platform. We were able to successfully deploy this service (door to door) within a 24hr window to a remote location.

Our action plan.

Based on the client’s requirements, Expeditious put into place:

  • Utilised an MCU with CCTV capability and welfare facilities
  • The site was covered 24/7 for a two-week period
  • Full implementation via our Critical Control Helpdesk (CCHD), with integrity checks throughout the deployment
  • Act as intermediary liaison between the client and other parties for smooth deployment and management.

What we achieved.

As a team, Expeditious achieved:

  • 24 hours from request to target location, in a remote location/region.
  • Controlled access and egress of the site, securing its perimeter.
  • Showcased our capability with the successful delivery of vehicle services
  • Protection of the site was successfully achieved throughout the deployment until the threat levels were reduced
  • Cost-effective and impactful response to client’s concerns. An MCU was an effective deterrent to manage the presented risks
  • Zero incidents and the site’s operational resilience was increased.

What Expeditious said.

“A shining example of how a challenging request is successfully handled from enquiry to deployment, this consistent approach combines professionalism with speed and efficiency” – Jason Pope, Service Excellence Director
