The Light Trailer is a large 20 kw diesel powered portable generator with a 35 foot telescoping light tower consisting of 4 lights. Its primary purpose is to put a large amount of light where we need to work and to power our equipment where we have no electrical power.
The Light Trailer is housed by the ECFPD and was provided to Division 55 by MABAS and the Illinois Terrorism Task Force. There are 77 MABAS Light Trailers deployed throughout the state of Illinois. They can supply electrical power and light to a variety of other specialty equipment.
