SCCSSAR ATV Team

The ATV specialty members provide highly skilled ATV riders to assist in many aspects of SAR incident operations. SCCSSAR has access to four ATV's which may be assigned to assist with initial hasty searches, containment duties, equipment transportation or subject evacuation.

Members of this specialty team are all graduates of a basic ATV riding and safety class and conduct regular training exercises to ensure familiarity with the equipment operation and its maintenance and also to ensure that all riders are able to safely negotiate a variety of terrain types. These training exercises also provide valuable 'seat-time' for riders to gain further experience.

While it is not necessary to own an ATV to be a member of this specialty team, participants are expected to provide the required personal safety equipment such as a DOT approved off-road motorcycle helmet, goggles and gloves.
