The Emergency Command Vehicle
The ECV has proven to be a valuable piece of equipment for the Department. It is used at a number of special events including May Days, Tour de Delta, Miri Piri celebrations and Canada Day.
In addition, it has been used for operational purposes including the Laura Szendrei homicide, South Fraser Perimeter Road protests and the Stanley Cup celebrations on Scott Road. The ECV, purchased in cooperation with the Corporation of Delta, is essentially a mobile police station. It can be used in any location and situation where normal infrastructure utilities are not available.
The ECV is equipped with its own power source, mobile dispatch, closed circuit TV, workstations with computer hookups, emergency supplies and toilet facilities. Since its purchase, the ECV has been used numerous times per year in a variety of situations.
