MARIETTA - The Marietta Fire Department is pleased to announce it has been awarded with a Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation Grant. The grant funds will be utilized to purchase a Yanmar UTV four-wheel drive vehicle.

This cost of the vehicle is $20,988 with all costs covered by the grant. This vehicle can sit up to three emergency personnel in the front and will be equipped with emergency lights and sirens. Additionally, the UTV is custom built with a bed insert that allows for one patient and a responder to be transported. The versatility of the vehicle allows for a patient to be transported on a Long Spine Board or a Stokes basket depending upon the rescue situation.

The Yanmar will go into service immediately and will be utilized for situations like events, road races, and missing hikers. The vehicle has a fully equipped rescue box that was customized especially for the Marietta Fire Department.
