Los Angeles - Farmers Insurance Group of Cos. introduces its new Mobile Catastrophe Command Center bus, which is designed to help its customers immediately after a catastrophe that may strike anywhere in the contiguous United States."The new Farmers Mobile Command Center bus was chosen as the catastrophe center-point for handling claims and servicing our customers," explains Frank Soldano, state executive, Farmers Insurance Group, Kansas. "The bus is equipped with the most state-of-the-art equipment available anywhere in the United States. It will enable Farmers claims representatives to offer claims help to our customers immediately following a catastrophe," Soldano said.

The diesel-powered, 45-foot-long mobile catastrophe command center has a built-in data satellite on top of the platform to service customers. It is also equipped with various advanced technology such as built-in GPS navigation, security and safety system, noise-reduction generator, and in-motion satellite TV, which allows Command Center personnel to track inclement weather events and urgent news reports when all other forms of communication are unavailable due to catastrophic events.

"We spent months researching and testing the most sophisticated and high performance satellite service and hardware ever developed and installed in a mobile command unit," explains Soldano.

Farmers incorporated this bus platform with the built-in self-acquiring low-profile, high-powered satellite system and communication technology on a bus that can be dispatched at a moment's notice to any catastrophe scene in the contiguous United States.
