Squad 1 is a 1994 Ford F Super Duty 4x4 light duty rescue with a 10ft body. Prior to the addition of the Squad, Engine 1 carried a majority of the rescue tools. A need for a specialty truck emerged after additional equipment was added to the Engine and it became overloaded. In late 2009, the department voted to purchase the Squad from the Glen Wilton VFD. Today, Squad 1 carries a wide variety of rescue tools for vehicle accidents, high angle rescues, and salvage and overhaul operations. One of the key advantages that the Squad provides is its 4x4 ability and short wheelbase, making it possible to reach remote, off road areas. Here is an overview of the Squad's equipment and features:

Whelen LED/Strobe Lighting and Siren System

Brush Guard, Warn 8 Series Winch

(4) Whelen Adjustable Pole Lighting, Portable Generator, Flashlights

ATV_1_Drivers

ATV_1_Pump

ATV 1 is the department's most recent addition to the fleet. The Blue Ridge area is a textbook example of a wildland urban interface--where human development interacts with the untouched, natural environment, such as forestland. In the past, large wildfires have broken out and endangered homes along these borders. Traditionally, brush trucks, water tankers, and general manpower have handled these fires, but the fire service is constantly seeking ways to improve fire suppression efforts. A customized ATV allows manpower, tools, water, and motorized transportation itself to rapidly reach these borderline areas. Additionally, injuries from remote activities such as hunting and hiking have created difficult rescue challenges for Fire & Rescue agencies. In August 2011, the department purchased a used 2004 Polaris from the Blue Ridge Rescue Suppliers to fulfill this emerging role. ATV 1 has been equpped with a 4-cycle 100 PSI pump, 50 gallon water tank, 100ft of booster reel hose, a removable poly tray for patient transport with a stokes basket, winch, and mounted scene lighting to fulfill both remote fire suppression and rescue vehicle roles.
