Polaris Ranger 6x6 - Grand Canyon National Park Search and Rescue

Search & Rescue

Information:

Grand Canyon National Park has one of the busiest EMS programs in the National Park Service.  In 2007, Park personnel responded to 1,400 medical incidents.  The 7,000 foot elevation of the South Rim is deceiving and elderly visitors frequently experience cardiac related chest pain, while walking along the rim.  Based at the South Rim Fire Station, the Polaris Ranger 6X6 permits NPS personnel to more efficiently reach medical emergencies along the popular Rim Trail.   The Ranger 6×6 is also used to effectively conduct search operations for missing subjects along the rim and on adjacent fire roads.  Additionally the UTV is perfect for transporting rescue equipment to accident scenes on the canyon rim.  The 6X6 feature is useful in winter snowpack and on high clearance roads permitting year-round mobility and access.
