Mobile Concepts by Scotty, which is a small woman-owned company located nearly 45 miles southeast of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, is known for designing and manufacturing specialty vehicles and trailers, modifying tractor trailers and repurposing ocean shipping containers for use by agencies in government, military and law enforcement.
During the past decade Mobile Concepts has partnered with the U.S. Department of Defense, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Northrop Grumman, Swift Ship and the Department of Veterans Affairs to name a few. They fulfilled needs for specialty vehicles including mobile commands such as FEMA Type III, processing and detainment tractor trailers, CBRNE response, hazmat, decon, tactical operations, surveillance, mobile classrooms from repurposed ocean shipping containers, small arms storage, community outreach, recruitment, substance abuse enforcement and others.
Sprinter-based Mobile Commands or other special service need:
The Sprinter can be used in a number of ways including mobile command center for disaster response, SWAT, surveillance, community outreach, recruitment or passenger transport as well as any situation that may require command and control from outside a traditional brick and mortar building.
Sprinters have up to a 5,000 pound towing capacity, and Mobile Concepts offers a support trailer that can be used to tow additional equipment and gear if needed.
A Mobile Concepts Sprinter can be outfitted and equipped to meet your specifications with options for space for up to 10 adults, storage space, work stations and fully adjustable and ergonomically designed seats and controls. These vehicles assure the end user with quick deployment and ease of movement.
This Mobile Concepts 39 foot mobile command for March ARB qualified as a FEMA Type III trailer with the addition of a satellite system.
Mobile Commands, FEMA Type III and Upgrades/Refurbishment:
Mobile Concepts has several mobile command floor plans from which to choose, but any design can be altered to fit your exact specifications or meet FEMA Type III requirements.
Some standard features of a Mobile Concepts mobile command are total trailer lengths from 10 to 53 feet, command area with varying numbers of work stations, conference room, full-perimeter wire chase, LAN and Land wiring, custom cabinetry, commercial flooring and others.
Our most popular feature is the addition of interoperability equipment (IOP) that permits communication between various emergency frequencies. This enhancement unites Fire, EMS and Security Forces into a single integrated command vehicle.
Mobile Concepts builds FEMA Type III trailers according to the specifications outlined by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) as well as upgrade or refurbish existing trailers and vehicles.
Several examples of the available upgrades are improvement of work station functionality and use of space; enhancement of audio/video components, outlets and connections; and high-tech communications, improvements to battery systems, addition of satellites and other communication antennas, masts, cameras or scene lighting and updates to graphics, finishes and options.
It doesn't matter if it is one of our models or any other manufacturer's: Mobile Concepts by Scotty up-fits brand new and old mobile commands and other commercial vehicles.
The addition of new technology and features to older systems boosts vehicle performance, improves safety, and increases multi-use capabilities with your budget in mind.

CBRNE Response, Hazmat and Decon Trailers:
Named CBRNE (chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and explosive), the main purpose of these trailers is to respond to suspicious substance incidents. They enhance existing disaster preparedness and response programs and can be used in conjunction with Mobile Concepts hazmat and/or decon trailers.
Mobile Processing and Detainment (Tractor Trailers):
The U.S. Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) partnered with Mobile Concepts to modify their existing fleet of 53-foot tractor trailers into mobile processing and detainment centers.
These vehicles were designed to allow CBP agents to quickly process illegal immigrants in a safe and secure environment. The tractor trailers provide support for other federal agencies in case of emergency or natural disasters. The equipment and communications capabilities allow it to double as mobile command center.
This Mobile Concepts CBRN response trailer for Charleston AFB will respond to chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear emergencies.
Small Arms Storage Trailers:
This 17 foot trailer contains gun lockers, storage closets, a work station, walk-on roof and small generator. It is intended to store and transport weapons such as M4s, shotguns and pistols.
