Kawasaki Mule - Lifeguard Vehicle on Kauai
Lydgate Beach – Kauai, Hawaii

Information:

Lydgate Beach Park on the island of Kauai is a great location for snorkeling in the protected swim area, but dangerous waves break on the outer reefs and coral and rocks create a few hazards that require the beach to be under the watch of lifeguards from the Kauai Fire Department (KFD).

The Kauai Fire Department has lifeguards on duty and they depend on their 2007 Kawasaki Mule 3010 for first aid and rescue services along the beach.  The Mule carries their rescue surfboard, first aid equipment and other rescue supplies. The 4 x 4 UTV extends the normal reach of the KFD lifeguards so they can cover the whole beach with only one tower.

Large enough to carry needed supplies, but smaller than a compact pickup truck, the Mule 3010 4×4 is the perfect vehicle for lifeguard duties at Lydgate Beach Park. The Mule features a four-stroke engine, selectable four-wheel drive, an automatic transmission, bench seat and tilting cargo bed.

Modifications:

The continuous beach environment is brutal on vehicles.  The KFD Mule was lined with “Lava-Liner” (similar to Line-X) to help prevent rust from taking over.  The Mule is also washed down at the end of each day.
