After six year wait, 'All Terrain Res-Q' delivered to Pikeville Fire & EMS in KY

May 31, 2012, ///EMERGENCY EQUIPMENT delivered the All Terrain Res-Q off road patient trailer featured under 'What's Hot'  on FR1's off road rescue page to the City of Pikeville Fire & EMS.

This refurbished ATV rescue trailer was previously in service with Kentucky Dept. of Agriculture's Farm and Home Safety Training Program.  Originally donated to the program as replacement for the first 'ATR'  trailer  provided in 2007, this rescue trailer was purchased by City of Pikeville Fire & EMS in Eastern Kentucky.  During the delivery an 'ATR' orientation session was held with on duty Pikeville Fire / Rescue personnel.   These individuals will act as instructors for the remainder of the department as they take on their new off road rescue responsibilities.

The significance of this event is two fold.   On April 23, 2006,  the first 'ATR' demonstration trail ride took place on a trail behind Pikeville FD's station #1. In 2006, Kentucky led the nation in ATV accident related fatalities, and Pike County had more fatalities than any other county in the state.  However, with tight budgets and higher priority equipment in need,  this 'ATR'  had to wait. Now, six years later Pikeville's is the 35TH 'All Terrain Res-Q'  trailer in the state of Kentucky, and the second 'ATR'  trailer serving in Pike County.

The City of Pikeville Fire & EMS will use the 'All Terrain Res-Q' off road patient transport trailer behind their 2008 Kawasaki 3010 Trans4X4 Mule. As their Mule is outfitted with a compressed air foam system (CAFS), the 'ATR' allows Pikeville FD to transport patients without the need to give up their off road fire suppression capabilities.
