UP TO PROVIDE
All Terrain Res-Q Trailer TO KENTUCKY's NEW "ATV
SAFETY & RESCUE TRAINING PROGRAM"
Knott County, Kentucky
Unfortunately, Kentucky continues to lead the
nation in All Terrain Vehicle fatalities.
However, a group of dedicated professionals are
working to change that.
So, on a cold, wet and windy early spring
Saturday morning in the mountains of
southeastern Kentucky, instructors from the new
Kentucky "ATV Safety and Rescue Training
Program" gathered to participate in the first
ever "ATV Safety and Rescue R&D Weekend."
The purpose of this gathering was to better
understand what the ATVs and UTVs used in this
program could do, and perhaps more importantly,
what they could not do. The site for this
unique gathering was the new "KNOTT COUNTY ATV
SAFETY TRAINING CENTER" at the Sutton Memorial
Park, located near Vest, in Knott County
As the weekend itinerary commenced, the first
event was presentation of an All Terrain Res-Q
Trailer for use in the training program's ATV
Safety & Rescue classes planned to be taught to
emergency responders statewide. Mr. Dale
Dobson, program coordinator for the Kentucky
Department of Agriculture's "Farm and Home
Safety Training Program" accepted the off-road
rescue trailer from Mike Brady, of ///EMERGENCY
EQUIPMENT, the master distributor for All
Terrain Res-Q. Brady stated: "With 64 of
these life saving off-road rescue trailers now
serving in 26 US states, All Terrain Res-Qs are
literally Coast to Coast, and then some!"
Participating in the ATV Safety and Rescue R&D
Weekend were the management and staff of the
Knott County ATV Safety Training Center,
instructors from the KDA Farm & Home Safety
Program, representatives of Emergency
Equipment, the crew of LifeNet MEDEVAC
helicopter service, members of LaRue County Fire
& Rescue, Hazard Fire & Rescue, Ball Creek VFD,
Salyersville Fire & Rescue's "Rhino ResQ Team"
and personnel from the newly formed Grapevine -
Chavies VFD "ATV Rescue Team" of Perry County.
In all, a dozen volunteer rescue personnel
utilized ten 4X4 ATVs and UTVs, plus four "All
Terrain Res-Q Trailers" during the two-day
