Setting up a containerized Incident Command Post in Australia

Container Fire Camp

When agencies in the Western United States set up a large Incident Command Post many fire organizations haul in trailers of one type or another, but this video shows how the Parks and Wildlife Service in Western Australia gets it done.

I imagine the units are quite a bit less expensive to procure than rolling stock, and it looks like they could be set up rather quickly on flat ground. If the units have to be leveled, I suppose you could raise them with the fork lift and slip concrete blocks and/or layers of 2″ x 12″ boards under them.
