Last year we were fortunate enough to secure funding from the Dunedin casino trust to purchase a new Can-am ATV.
This has already shown its value to the community by transporting many patients off the beach to the surf club or waiting ambulances.
St John Ambulance used the Can-am at last years Dunedin Marathon as a response resource for the narrow tracks through the Botanic Gardens and down the harbour cycle way.
During a large scale search for a missing teen in January the ATV was used at St Clair to transport the Police National Dive Squads equipment on and off the beach.
Having this ATV increases safety for our lifeguards significantly as it has a wider foot print as well as seat belts, speed restrictions, roll cage and even gives lifeguards some protection from the elements whilst patrolling the beach.
