Valdosta - After working in 9/11, a Valdosta environmental company noticed a need for a new tool.

Care Environmental Corp, which collects, identifies, and disposes of hazardous waste, build a new emergency response trailer.

It's satellite capabilities and generator allow the truck to be a hub during a natural disaster, large accidents, or terrorist attack.

It's also fully equipped to handle a nuclear, chemical or radioactive emergency.  "It's completely self-sufficient, it's got showers on board, as well as decontamination showers, laboratories, and Level A, Level B, and Level C suits," says Frank McKenna, President of Care Environmental.

It has been at the forefront of major natural disasters since 2002.
