The Lanoka Harbor EMS Fleet is comprised of five vehicles- three ambulances, two one first response unit, and one all terrain rescue vehicle. In 2012 Lanoka Harbor EMS acquired the most unique addition to our fleet, ASAP 266, which was awarded to Lanoka Harbor EMS through a 100% non-matching grant sponsored by The Department of Homeland Security.
Put into service in September of 2017, this vehicle is assigned to the Chief 24/7. Unique features include full flood mode on the lightbar which affords increased visibility on scene.
Built on the chassis of a Polaris Ranger, the ASAP (Alternative Support Apparatus) is a very versatile tool. It has many uses, including off road rescue assignments and mass gathering responses. Lanoka Harbor EMS was the recipient of a $75,000.00 non-matching DHS grant, which funded the purchase of this vehicle.
This vehicle is specifically designed to handle large scale, as well as motor vehicle, incidents.
All vehicle equipment is regularly maintained. Stretchers and other movement devices, such as stair chairs, and inspected on a yearly basis to ensure their operational integrity.
