The Block Island Volunteer Fire Department has purchased a new vehicle that will be utilized for off-road emergencies on Block Island’s challenging terrains. The Fire Department took receipt of the $45,000 vehicle last week, which was purchased using the department’s reserve fund. “It is a Utility Task Vehicle, UTV, that we purchased from Alternative Support Apparatus,” said Rescue Captain Kate McConville, who noted that the Ohio-based company specializes in the manufacturing “of custom extreme off-road emergency and rescue vehicles. It is the Intimidator model, equipped with a full stretcher, side compartment for storage, and gas generator, as well. It can go on the beach and down all the island’s trails.”
