Natural Disaster Response

The equipment will allow us to clear roadways so that responders can move through the community to respond to incidents. The equipment will allow us to remove debris from major infrastructure so that essential services such as water, sewer, electric, fire and emergency medical service can be restored to local communities during natural disasters. Also, the equipment will allow us to provide power to local responders at emergency scenes wehre lighting, power tools, rescue equipment and other resources are needed. We have three trailers with this equipment in Garrard County at the District 1 fire station, Nicholas County at the Carlisle fire station, and in Madison County at the Richmond fire department.
