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.
In addition to tire chains (useful even during the summer in sandy locations) the tow vehicles typically carry:
- Fire Extinguisher
- First aid kit
- HD flashlight (e.g., 5-cell Maglite)
- 4-way lug wrench (for various size trailer lugs)
- Bottle jack
- Heavy duty jumper cables
- 2- large tow straps
- 2- reflective vests
- Small tool box
- Bottle of engine oil (older vehicles)
- Bottled water (for human consumption)
- Fusee flares or reflector stands
