Colorado Springs, CO – The Colorado Springs Fire Department will be hosting the Farmers Insurance Mobile Command Claims (MCC) bus at the Colorado Springs Fire Department Headquarters on Wednesday, June 27 for a Firefighters Appreciation Day and Cookout. Farmers Insurance will bring and set up their Catastrophe Bus to demonstrate its capabilities.
Farmers Insurance has three Catastrophe Buses (Mobile Command Claims or MCC bus) that are deployed at a moment’s notice to catastrophes anywhere in the United States. The bus sets up and acts as a claims center to handle claims, serve food, supplies, and assist customers and non-customers with their immediate needs. The MCC is displayed at the IAFC WUI Conference in Reno and the national IAFC Convention (this year in Denver), every year.
