Huntington Fire Receives OHV Grant !
Your fire department has received a grant from the State of California's Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation (OHMVR) Division to purchase a 'side-by-side' ATV to use for off-highway medical rescues in the Sierra National Forest.
The grant includes funds to purchase the vehicle, a trailer, communications and navigation devices and emergency lighting.
In the past when conducting rescues on off-highway trails it has been necessary for us to hike into the patient 'backpacking' our rescue and medical aid gear. Often these rescues take four or five hours, tying up much need resources from your fire department, the Forest Service, Sheriff Office, helicopters from one or more agencies, ambulances, etc. This ATV will greatly reduce the amount of time all our agencies are 'committed' to rescues and greatly reduce the time it takes to help patients.
When trying to reach us in an emergency, ALWAYS DIAL 911 !
A single 911 call initiates an immediate response from HLVFD and gets an ambulance rolling from the American Ambulance station in Shaver Lake (if it is a medical emergency).
