Farmers Insurance(R) Catastrophe Bus to Make Appearance in Murfreesboro for Tennessee Gubernatorial Forum, April 28 & 29

Continuing its national disaster awareness tour, the Farmers Insurance Group of Companies® Mobile Command Center (MCC) will make its next appearance on the Middle Tennessee State University (MTSU) campus in Murfreesboro this Wednesday and Thursday, April 28 and 29.


The specially-equipped catastrophe bus is outfitted with the latest in tele-communications equipment and is designed to provide disaster victims with a place from which they can communicate with family and friends to advise of their situation. It also enables Farmers to begin the post-catastrophe recovery process for their customers.

"Our MCCs are designed to offer residents an immediate response to a local catastrophe," said Betsy Nealon, state executive director for Farmers in Tennessee. "We are proud to be industry leaders in designing and mobilizing these types of first-response vehicles, which is just one of many ways that Farmers continues to innovate on behalf of its customers."

The appearance of the MCC is being made in conjunction with Farmers co-sponsorship (with MTSU) of the Tennessee gubernatorial forum being held at the Middle Tennessee campus on Thursday, April 29 at 7:00 p.m.

Prior to the forum, beginning the afternoon of Wednesday, April 28 and continuing throughout the following day, the MCC will be available for MTSU faculty and public tours just outside of MTSU's Murphy Center, which is the venue for the political forum.

Tickets to the public forum are still available and can be picked up at Farmers Insurance locations throughout middle Tennessee. Those unable to be in attendance are invited to view the forum via webcast by logging on to and clicking on the gubernatorial forum link.
