The Joint Command Unit provides a unique command and control capability, enabling both fire and police officers to work together in a single vehicle. It also supports coordinated working with other agencies involved in an incident. This, together with the integration of resilient communications platforms and other technologies, enables the JCU to be the access point providing the highest level of situation awareness of an incident for all commanders and specialist responders, whether on scene or at a remote location
