FHP command vehicle

On February 3, 1999, the Jacksonville Transportation Authority leased a 1986 surplus bus to the Florida Highway Patrol for $1 a year. This vehicle was painted by the JTA in FHP’s color scheme, complete with decals and lettering, and will be used as a mobile command center for natural disasters and other emergencies. The Florida Highway Patrol is responsible for outfitting the bus interior with appropriate communications and other support systems. A grant from the State Emergency Operations Center will be used to pay for refurbishing the inside of the vehicle. The Broward County Transit Authority did a similar partnership with Dade County FHP. The Jacksonville-based FHP Troop G used that bus as it’s command center during the wildfires that engulfed Northeast Florida in the summer of 1998.
