ATV 719 was purchased in the spring of 2001 from Vetesnik Power Sports in Richland Center. The members or the department saw the need to have a small off road capable unit for use at wild land fire scenes to better gain access to areas that our four wheel drive units could not reach. 719 has allowed for faster suppression of grass and woods fires by carrying water and personnel to areas where they would have had to walk and carry all equipment to. The skid unit in the back of the ATV is removable by two people to allow the cargo box area to be used for equipment transport or rescue of injured people from remote off road areas. The ATV is also capable of towing the trailer that it is transported on, and has hauled countless numbers of sandbags during flooding events. 719, its equipment, and the trailer were all paid for with funds from our annual Firefighters Dance that is held each October during national fire prevention week. All work on the unit (painting, lettering, electrical, and building of the skid unit) to place 719 into service was provided by members of the department.
