This 1/64 Scale Milwaukee, WI LDV Command and Communications Vehicle is the first Code 3 Collectibles release in the Command Vehicles Series.

Communications Unit 1 is a 1997 LDV Command Vehicle.

The Milwaukee Fire Department has provided public safety services since 1875. The department currently operates 36 firehouses that are geographically organized into six battalions. Their facilities house 37 engine companies, 16 ladder companies, 8 paramedic units, and 4 rescue squads. Some units have the added responsibilities of special teams: Dive Rescue (Dive), Hazardous Materials (Haz-Mat), and the Heavy Urban Rescue Team (HURT).

The department has dramatically increased its fire prevention activities since the late 1980's. In 1997, the Fire Department began providing fire inspection services for public buildings. It also works with building managers to identify any potential fire hazards.

Since the 1970's, the department has provided Emergency Medical Services (EMS). Now EMS calls constitute nearly 80% of all requests to the Fire Department for emergency services. The department also participates in a system to provide basic life support services with private sector ambulance providers, and it provides paramedic or advanced life support services under Milwaukee County oversight.

The Milwaukee Fire Department's mission is to protect the people and property within the city. The department responds to the needs of citizens by providing rapid, professional, and humanitarian services essential to the health, safety, and well being of city residents.

- Continue providing citizen information and education programs designed to prevent and minimize the effects of fire and other trauma. These special programs include the Fire Fighters Out Creating Urban Safety (FOCUS), Operation First Responder, Sesame Street, Elder Safe, and Survive Alive programs.
- Continue recruiting individuals with roots in the community, thereby lessening losses of trained personnel to other jurisdictions.
- Improve Advanced Life Support services by re-deploying Paramedic staff and increasing the number of Paramedic First Responder (PFR) Engine Companies.
