Polaris RANGER Transformed Into Nimble EMS and Firefighting Platform


Kimtek Corporation recently announced FIRELITE™ and MEDLITE™ Transport Skid support for the 2010 Polaris RANGER 6×6 UTV.

“We are thrilled with the upgrades to the 2010 Polaris RANGER 6×6,” said Kimball Johnson, president of Kimtek Corporation. “Our MEDLITE EMS & FIRELITE skid units work great on the 6×6 platform with its high load capacity and the new storage space is a big plus for firefighters and emergency personnel.”

The Kimtek FIRELITE™ Transport is a UTV fire/rescue skid unit built to be practical and tough. It is designed to perform a number of tasks in a limited amount of space.

The lightweight wildland firefighting skid unit can carry water, pump water onto fires, hold a rescue stokes basket or long board, store hose line and equipment. It can even be ordered with an optional foam system added to a Darley Pump units!

The Kimtek firefighting skid units feature time tested, nationally recognized products like Darley-Davey Pumps, Hannay Reels, Pacer Pumps and Scotty Foam Systems. All of our skid units are designed to be universal in nature, thus able to fit into many UTV 4×4 and 6×6 models found on the market today.
The MEDLITE™ Transport is designed to carry one patient, one EMS attendant and assorted emergency gear. The long board is easily attached to the unit using 10 Velcro D loop straps.

The attendant’s seat with seat belt glides on wheels the entire length of the unit and is able to be locked in three different locations along the guide rails to meet any emergency situation.

The MEDLITE™ has 9 cubic feet of enclosed storage under the patient area for medical bags, trauma supplies and oxygen. The unit comes standard with a retractable IV pole.
