  LRTC Emergency Response Team

Transport-11 Inventory

Updated August 7, 2020

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.

Transport 11 is a rescue-transport "hybrid," normally garaged in a remote location, and as such is configured differently from the other transport trailers. It carries some of the same equipment as the rescue units but it is designed more for a combination of initial response (backed up by conventional rescue units) as well as 4-horse transport capability.

The unit is a 1990 Stidham 4-horse straight load, reconditioned and modified for TLAR and evac functions.
