An Orion LX Weather Station from Columbia Weather Systems stands guard atop the Verizon Mobile Command Center.
The trailer supported the Indianapolis Department of Homeland Security during the recent Super Bowl weekend. When not in use, the 51-foot Featherlite trailer resides in Texas.
WeatherMaster Software is displayed on all the monitors inside the trailer and the exterior big screen.
Thanks to customer David C. of Saab Sensis for spotting the photos in an online article and calling the story to our attention.
Quoting from the article: "Having this trailer allows Verizon to operate in a very adverse environment in the case of disasters," Price said, "as well as in situations where there are limited facilities to provide a base of operations, as in the Super Bowl." Richard Price is Chief Business Continuity Officer for Verizon.
