ATV Law Loaner Program
This past week, Central Alexander Fire Department received a 2013 Kawasaki Mule ATV. This is a 3-way partnership with Kawasaki Corporation, Brushy Mountain Motorsports (Wilkesboro, NC), & the fire department. The Kawasaki Mule has the following: 4wd, differential lock, 2 or 4 seats, dump bed, short or extended bed, 3 cylinder diesel engine, class 3 receiver hitch, etc. The purpose of the ATV is for public events in town such as; but not limited to the following: Apple Festival, 5k runs, Christmas Parade, etc. The ATV will also be utilized for assisting with hydrant maintenance in town where it would be difficult to get an apparatus parked for maintenance purposes, moving equipment around during hose testing, and if the need arise to assist Alexander Rescue in ATV rescue. Currently, the plans are for most of our members to get training in ATV General Safety course scheduled later this month, then we hope to have a few members take the ATV Rescue course, so was can better assist the rescue squad should the need ever arise.
