Capabilities: These utility terrain vehicles (UTVs) come in an enclosed trailer (the UTV Trailer) ready to deploy. Each has an assigned DFS operator who will remain as long as the unit is needed. Two of the UTVs have an optional medical bed that holds a Stokes basket for transporting patients; the other has a utility bed that can haul coolers for rehab into the woods, medical equipment, or anything that needs to get off road. The UTVs are equipped with sufficient lighting for night use.
Possible scenarios for UTV usage include: distributing water to dehydrated firefighters; getting a radio repeater site up and running in the aftermath of a tornado, or transporting a runner in cardiac arrest in a road race. See specifications below:
