New Medical Gator is Ready for Service in Kentucky
Bowling Green, KY - Yesterday, the Kentucky Dept. of Agriculture's "Farm & Home Safety Program" was notified that a new 2011 John Deere Gator 825i XUV off road utility vehicle is ready for pick up at HARTLAND Equipment, Bowling Green, KY. For the third consecutive year DEERE and HARTLAND have teamed up to provide the 'best Gator yet' for service with the nation's most comprehensive farm, home and off road rescue training program. This Gator delivery coincides with the recent donation by KIMTEK Corp. of Westmore, VT, of a new MedLite EMS / Rescue bed insert. This MedLite insert will be delivered and installed by EMERGENCY EQUIPMENT of Independence, KY, at this weekend's Dixie Fire School in Elizabethtown, KY.

When finished, this new Gator 825i XUV will include a JUNKIN JSA-200B 'Break-Apart' stretcher from EMERGENCY EQUIPMENT and custom cut TURTLE Tile matting on the stretcher deck donated by TURTLE Plastics of Lorain, Ohio.
The MTD-11 MedLite EMS / Rescue insert includes an adjustable seat and slide out tray.
With the help of responsible corporate partners who made this vehicle possible, this Gator 'XUV' will help train hundreds of emergency responders statewide for many years to come. So, please be SAFE out there! But, if not, we'll be there for you!
