RESOURCE GUIDE

Response Vehicle Supplies

Updated August 10, 2012

This information sheet is primarily intended for persons associated with or working with the LRTC Emergency Response Team, however the information may be useful to other groups or private individuals who may wish to similarly equip a support unit or who may need to utilize the resources available from LRTC's Emergency Response Team.

Basic supplies are stored in our tow vehicles so that they will be immediately available in emergency situations. Some of these supplies are stored in gear boxes and others behind vehicle seats, depending on the configuration of the vehicles.

  Inventory

In addition to tire chains (useful even during the summer in sandy locations) the tow vehicles typically carry:

  • Fire Extinguisher
