ATV Refresher

During our Tuesday night training, UAFD worked on ATV operations lead by our Engineer/firefighter Hess. We went over how to hook up the ATV trailer to the Utility and haul it to a scene. The mission was to find a “missing hiker.” The crew assembled the ATV’s equipment on its own smaller trailer and took off searching. Once they found the victim, who had fallen down a small embankment into an overgrown area, they brought them out and loaded them onto the trailer which has walking axles so the patient stays relatively level with the ground as the wheels walk over obstacles.

After the evolution, members who weren’t experienced with the ATV got to do some driver training with it.
