Park Ranger Skids – Everything You Need

You never know what you’ll run into out in the wild. When patrolling hiking trails and national parks, rangers require various tools and resources to ensure survival and the ability to respond effectively. First, you’ll want to consider the most essential items when stocking your UTV skid.

  • First Aid Supplies: Be equipped to handle emergencies. Stock your skid with comprehensive first aid kits containing bandages, antiseptic solutions, and other relevant medical supplies.
  • Communication Devices: Effective communication is vital for coordinating with other park rangers and responding promptly to emergencies. Equip your skid with two-way radios or satellite communication devices to stay connected even in remote areas with limited cell coverage.
  • Survival Gear: Prepare for unforeseen circumstances by including survival kits on your skid. These kits may include emergency blankets, fire-starting tools, multi-tools, waterproof matches, compasses, and signaling devices.
  • Water & Food: It’s crucial to carry ample water and non-perishable food to sustain rangers during long patrols or unexpected situations. Pack lightweight, calorie-dense options that are easy to carry and have a long shelf life.

Preparing For Immediate Medical Response

On trail and park patrols, you require the ability to provide an immediate medical response. Our survival skids can be customized to carry K9 companions for search and rescue and to transport wounded or sick campers, hikers, or rangers. Additionally, you’ll want to load on supplies for many of the most common injuries you run into.

  • Snake Bite Kits: In areas with venomous snakes, snake bite kits can be lifesaving. Include these kits on your patrol skids and clear instructions on their use.
  • Bug Bite Treatments: Allergies or severe reactions to bug bites can occur. Carry appropriate treatments such as antihistamines or hydrocortisone creams to alleviate symptoms.
  • Sun Protection: Rangers spend long hours in the sun. Stock your trail skids with sunscreen, hats, and sunglasses to protect against harmful UV rays.

Effective Communication On Park Patrols

Communication is key for successful trail and park patrols. They provide essential lifelines if rangers become stranded or need to assist others in distress. Skid units ensure you have the tools you need for effective communication handy on your UTV. Don’t forget the extra batteries.

  • Two-Way Radios: Reliable two-way radios allow for seamless communication between park rangers, enabling quick response and coordination during emergencies.
  • Satellite Communication Devices: In areas with limited or no cell coverage, satellite communication devices provide a lifeline for rangers, allowing them to communicate with base camps or request assistance when needed.
