OZARK, Mo. --Missouri State Agency for Surplus Property (MOSASP) obtained FEMA travel trailers. Missouri “donees” acquiring the travel trailers include Cities, Counties, Fire Districts and State Agencies.
Christian County in Ozark, Missouri obtained this 2006 R-Vision trailer, which was in like new condition. The trailer was obtained for use as a mobile command center for their Local Emergency Planning Committee. By purchasing this trailer through the MOSASP program, the County was able to save thousands of dollars. County EMA was able to acquire the trailer from the program for only $3,500.00, yet it is valued well over four times that amount.
The county added lettering and logos to the exterior of the trailer. In the interior, they created a radio/communications area by removing the existing table and couch and replacing them with a long command table and the communication equipment, i.e. radios, network, TV, cameras and printer/fax. A 50’ extendable antenna is also being attached.
