  LRTC Emergency Response Team

Garage location: Stagecoach, NV

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.

Tac Support-1 replaces the Water Supply-1 trailer as it is a former Type-6 brush truck with a 300-gallon tank and 2-cylinder pump. It is also equipped as a service truck for highway calls, carrying emergency fence repair supplies and tools.

The advantage of having this equipment on a 1-ton 4-wheel-drive pickup is that the person(s) responding with it don't need a tow vehicle and there isn't time lost "hooking up." Members do need to familiarize themselves with this vehicle and take it on a "road run" to get familiar with its characteristics and where equipment is located.
