Search and rescue operations all over the United States are finding that there are many advantages to having a UTV or ATV at their disposal. Search and rescue operations are full of challenges that must be met quickly, and a well-equipped rescue vehicle can literally be a lifesaver.

Why Are UTVs So Helpful For Search & Rescue?

Move Quickly Without Exhausting Your Personnel

  • Travel On Rough Terrain
  • Keep Your Gear Handy
  • Room For K-9 Kennels
  • Haul Equipment For Heavy Lifting

When you need to cover ground quickly while getting a close look at the scene, a UTV will be an excellent asset.

Move Quickly Without Exhausting Your Personnel

With a UTV ready to go, your search and rescue team will be able to move quickly while conserving energy.

Travel On Rough Terrain

Whether you are on a rocky beach or in a dense forest rescue setting, you will appreciate the all-terrain capacities of a UTV.

Keep Your Gear Handy

Choose a skid unit for your UTV with a storage box to keep everything organized and close by.

Room For A K-9 Kennel

If you often use a canine officer to help in your search efforts, you can choose a skid unit that offers a designated space for your K-9 coworkers.

Equipment For Heavy Lifting

You can choose a winch as part of your skid accessories, which will greatly aid your rescue efforts when you need to move, pull, or haul heavy objects.
