In its continued commitment to support public agencies and other entities in their response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Acela Truck Company’s specialty vehicle division has expanded its line of emergency and disaster response solutions to include purpose-built mobile vaccination and testing trailers. These join the company's current manufacturing lines of high-mobility truck chassis, fire trucks, flood rescue vehicles, specialty vehicles, and mobile mass-fatality solutions.
The customized, purpose-built, bumper-pull style trailers are designed to be utilized as stand-alone units, combined together or with military-style or commercial tents for flexibility and scalability. Acela’s new line of mobile medical units are especially effective in climates and environments where medical personnel and the public require shelter from harsh elements, and to be built and delivered in large quantities in very short periods of time. The trailers can be customized to include onboard power, heating and air conditioning systems, generators, air purifiers, privacy curtains or rooms, wireless connectivity, and ultra-low temperature (ULT) freezers for vaccine storage.
The units are available now for federal, state, and local government agencies.
Trailers are available in multiple sizes, various capabilities, and a wide range of price points designed to meet a variety of requirements and budgets. They and are available for lease or purchase directly from Acela and through its multiple contracting cooperatives, including GSA. The new products also qualify for grants and for federal government reimbursement.
