To Whom it may Concern: As the Incident Management Commander for the Lee County Sheriff's Office I am involved in the majority of the large-scale incidents and events in the South West Florida Area. The one thing that most of these events have in common is the need for command and control, which in turn requires facilities. Frequently these events and incidents are not in areas where command and control facilities are nearby. This presented the Lee County Sheriff's Office with a significant challenge; A challenge that MBF Industries, Inc. aided us in meeting.

In 2007 the Lee County Sheriff's Office formed a team of personnel representing several divisions and disciplines within the Sheriff's Office, to research and evaluate mobile communications and command vehicle manufacturers. This team visited the plants where the vehicles are made, met with designers and sales personnel and spoke with previous customers. This process led the team to the selection of MBF Industries, Inc. of Sanford, Florida as the company we would trust to build our mobile communications and command vehicle.

Once MBF Industries, Inc. was selected we met with several members of the design and construction team at MBF to discuss the anticipated use of the new vehicle and features that we desired to be included in the vehicle. We found this process to be very beneficial to us as MBF personnel have tremendous experience in the design and use of these vehicles. They were able to take our desired and turn them into very efficient designs. MBF personnel thought of the long term ramifications of some of our ideas, which would have cost us a great deal of money in the future had not MBF personnel been so experienced and recognize the issues. The resulting design of the vehicle is very functional and practical while including many features other manufacturers either could not provide or charged a great deal more for.

With the design complete a proposal was prepared and contracts were signed. This began the process of building the vehicle. MBF personnel kept us informed of the progress of the manufacture of the chassis for our vehicle and then the actual construction of the vehicle. On several occasions we were able to visit the plant and examine their progress on our vehicle. This provided us with behind the scenes view of our vehicle and its construction.

Upon completion of our vehicle MBF personnel spent a great deal of time training us on the operation of the various systems and vehicle components. These same personnel have remained available post sale and delivery to be a resource to us for maintenance or additional equipment installation. Any service needs have been handled by MBF without issue and in a rapid and timely manner.

I found Mr. John Baker and his staff at MBF Industries, Inc. to be genuinely concerned about the needs of Public Safety in our area and in the area of all of his customers. MBF is not just a company building vehicles; they are a company providing public safety with some tools that are necessary to provide for the care and safety of our citizens and guests. Mr. Baker takes that responsibility very seriously and runs his business with the mission of his customers in mind. It is only because of the response of Mr. Baker and his staff at MBF that the Lee County Sheriff's Office was able to build and operate a first class mobile communications and command vehicle. Our vehicle is used frequently to provide and on scene command center. This has resulted in escaped criminals being apprehended, severe storm cleanup to be managed, Officers killed in the line of duty to be given a service of dignity and many other operations and incidents to be managed.

I frequently am told by members of other agencies involved in events and incidents in which our mobile communications and command vehicle is utilized in that our truck provides a great resource and facility from which to operate. With the configuration of all of the electronic equipment to the command space provided this vehicles had not failed to be functional in every mission it is assigned.

I have included a photo of our Mobile Communications and Command Vehicle in operation as the Incident Command Post for a week long missing child operation. The vehicle was the center of the operation providing command space, communications support and intelligence operation space.

I am happy to recommend MBF Industries, Inc. and the vehicles produced by them to any agency that wants the best solutions with the best features for their mobile system needs. A more responsive and resourceful company could not be found.

Respectfully,

Captain Rich Schnieders
Lee County Sheriff's Office
Incident Management Commander
