RENO, Nev. (AP) - Sen. Harry Reid and Washoe County Sheriff Michael Haley are rolling out a special communications vehicle that
will help officials set up a mobile command center during a disaster.
The so-called Critical Incident Response Vehicle is set to be unveiled Tuesday afternoon in Reno.
It will carry vital communications equipment and intelligence-gathering staff, and is the first of its kind in Nevada.
Haley says it's critical that agencies can communicate with each other during a crisis situation.
Reid says the money for the vehicle comes from the U.S. Department of Justice.
