Command Sedan


Battalion Sedan

Command vehicles are sometimes referred to as “Battalion Sedans” when the commander holds the rank of “Battalion Chief.” The example shown is a Battalion Sedan (even though this is a truck chassis with a box mounted on the rear) from the Los Angeles Fire Department. Each Battalion Chief in the LAFD is responsible for a group of fire stations in a geographic area, typically 20 – 30 square miles in size. There are between five and eight fire stations in a Battalion. The Battalion Chief is responsible for fire/emergency suppression/mitigation within his/her Battalion. A “command team” Emergency Incident Technician (EIT) supports the B/C with critical tracking and resource management functions at any emergency.
