These vehicles are often considered a recreational, off-highway vehicle and come in a large variety of styles, configurations, and platforms. This particular ATV is a modified, military grade vehicle, housed at Brea Fire Station No. 3. The ATV and its 3-person crew will respond to off-road emergencies for a multitude of reasons including: off-road medical emergencies (downed hiker or mountain biker), fire pre-planning and reconnaissance, fire fuel mitigation, heavy rescue operations, patient packaging and transport to ground ambulance or helicopter, and large incident logistics.

Overall, the Brea Fire Department is responsible for over 2,000 acres of wildland/urban interface between the areas of Tonner, Carbon, and Brea Canyons. These are heavily used for industry and recreation, creating significant demands for life and property protection.

Regardless of location, terrain, or other obstacles, the Brea Fire Department is poised to respond quickly to mitigate any emergency.
