High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicles
DEEMI has 5 HMMWVs, two are in full SAR Multimission configuration and work on SAR missions as Scout, FLIR, Medical, Crew support, deployment in remote areas, recovery of same, communications relay, water fording, water rescue, night lighting, and other unique missions. The Maine Military Authority fully rebuilt standard M998 HMMWVs into our Search and rescue specification in 2010. We fully appreciate what they did to advance our mission, they have been instrumental in many of our missions finding and helping those lost and missing.
Often, when searches take us in the backwoods or rough country where pickups and like vehicles cannot traverse, our Humvees are assisted by local Jeep 4-wheel drive clubs, many of whom are also DEEMI volunteers.
M-GATOR 6-WHEEL UTV
We also have an M-Gator UTV, military version Gator with six wheels and many options and a diesel engine. It has litter carrying points on the front rack to attend the patient and note the military stretcher in back to use for that purpose.
