Rescue 3

Updated January 1, 2018

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 inventory during an emergency.

Pulled by the Jeep, Rescue 3 was built to provide a more compact and rapidly deployable technical large animal rescue unit that also had reasonable off-road capability.

The inventory carried on Rescue 3 has recently been streamlined in order to better address the need for a light-weight, first out unit equipped to handle the majority of our technical calls. The heavy extrication and incident support equipment are being moved to a new "Special Operations Support" unit. An information sheet on that unit will be posted when it is in service.
