Are your off-road emergency responders ready for patient transports this season?

Multiple patient transports are routine off-road emergency dispatches!

They'll be ready with 'All Terrain Res-Q' trailers and 'MedLite' inserts!


Crockettsville ATV Trail Ride EMS Rescue Stand-by

When your beach patrols serve double duty as rescuers, having strategically-placed All Terrain Res-Q off-road patient transport trailers staged at lifeguard shacks, maintenance huts, or other nearby secure structures is both a timesaver and a lifesaver! ATV rescue trailers from EMERGENCY EQUIPMENT in Independence, KY, are serving on beaches from Florida to Alaska, plus on Cape Cod and Nantucket, and even in the Bahamas!

Blue Unit Beach Rescue

In addition to these coastal locations, several all-terrain rescue trailers are used at state and national parks and forest; as well at larger hike-and-bike facilities operated by several major ski resorts throughout North America. Our rescue trailer dealers offer the equipment you need to respond to emergencies quickly.

With All Terrain Res-Q off-road patient transport trailers strategically positioned along the beach, any lifeguard service, law enforcement, or fire/rescue 4X4 ATV or UTV becomes an emergency medical transport unit in minutes!

The Boy Scouts of America chose EMERGENCY EQUIPMENT to provide four All Terrain Res-Q off-road patient transport trailers for use at the new Summit Bechtel National Scout Reserve (SBR) near Mount Hope, WV. With 50,000 Scouts and leaders attending the National Scout Jamboree, SBR's ATV Emergency Medical Response Teams were ready for anything anywhere on this 10,600 acre, mostly wooded mountainous facility, adjacent to the New River Gorge National Park!

Boy Scouts of America EMS

Remember the Boy Scout motto: "BE PREPARED!" To ensure access on the +36 miles of narrow mountain bike trails, BSA's EMS planners ordered 'Anderson Litter Wheels' and mounted them to the top rail of their 'Junkin' JSA-200 basket stretchers. When the ATV/ATR EMS Team encounters a trail not wide enough for their machines, the basket stretcher, and litter wheel are dismounted, and the EMS Team continues their mission. At the scene, other Scouts and Scout leaders are enlisted to assist the EMS Team in transporting the patient back to their 'ATV/ATR' combination rig.

All Terrain Res-Q

"All Terrain Res-Q" off-road patient transport trailers are safely towed by ATVs, UTVs, Snowmobiles, plus Jeeps and other OHVs. No matter what the off-road mission brings, 'ATR' patient trailers are the "manpower multiplier" you wish you had for your last extended off-road carryout. Select from the original straight frame 'ATR-1' or, if storage space is limited, the 'ATR-2', a very compact folding frame model. As multiple patient means of transport with far fewer rescuers are becoming more common today, install the 'MedLite' EMS/Rescue insert in the bed of your full-size side-by-side utility vehicle.

Rescue Trailer

EMERGENCY EQUIPMENT's Honda 500 Foreman 4X4 ATV with All Terrain ResQ off-road patient transport trailer arrives at an 'Air Methods' MedEvac LZ in Knott County, Kentucky.

Every year, a group of Kentucky's fire/rescue/EMS instructors gather for two days of "R&D" covering ATV/ UTV safety and rescue training. Organized and supported by the Kentucky Dept. of Agriculture's Farm and Home Safety Program -- these volunteers provide their own off-road vehicles and safety equipment, as well as meals. As most are avid outdoorsmen and women, they camp overnight at the training site. These events are held at the Knott County ATV & Motorcycle Training Center.

During this event, KIMTEK Corporation and EMERGENCY EQUIPMENT will be presenting a new 'MedLite' MTD-103 EMS / Rescue bed insert to the Kentucky Department of Agriculture's Farm and Home Safety Training Program. This off-road rescue utility vehicle bed insert includes custom cut 'Turtle Tile' stretcher deck matting donated by Turtle Plastics. Dale Dobson's program will be installing this insert on a John Deere Gator 4X4 'XUV' donated by Deere & Co. for use during farm rescue and ATV/UTV safety and rescue courses across Kentucky. So, come to the Dixie Fire School and check out KDA's new ride!
