Polaris Ranger

This 6x6 Polaris Ranger is used by the Pine Mountain Fire Department for off-road rescue and during numerous outings and special events involving large numbers of people.

The Ranger was donated to the fire department by the U.S. Smokeless Tobacco Company as part of Operation Ranger. The Polaris Ranger came equipped with a 4,000-pound Warn winch mounted on the front. The department purchased the windshield and roof.

Harris County Emergency Medical Service Paramedic Scott Lightsey manufactured a mounting system in the Ranger’s bed that securely holds a backboard, two personnel to assist a patient, and basic life support equipment. Emergency lights and an electronic siren were donated for the Ranger.

The Pine Mountain Fire Department’s primary service area includes:

  • A general aviation airport;
  • A large part of Callaway Gardens which includes about 12,000 acres the majority of which are woodlands; and
  • A large part of F.D. Roosevelt State Park which includes over 9,000 acres along with campsites and trails.

The Ranger has been summoned to searches for downed aircraft and has been used to retrieve injured people from areas not accessible by standard vehicles. It has also been used to provide medical care and transport of patients during events involving large numbers of people.

The Polaris Ranger is owned by the Town of Pine Mountain.
