On behalf of the City Council and the Atascadero City Fire Department (AFD), we want to again thank you for your generous donations and support of our Disaster Response Trailer (DRT). Without your assistance, we could not have made our goal of $100,000. Our fundraising venture is complete and the DRT is ready for incident response.
AFD did not do this alone. Over 120 community members contributed to the project in the form of donations, volunteered time, or logistical support.
The AFD is dedicated to protecting the life and safety of the citizens of Atascadero as well as the surrounding communities in San Luis Obispo County. As you know, the trailer’s purpose is to serve as a valuable resource for all types of disasters, both man-made and natural.
Again, thank you very much for your donation to our department and for your support of the Disaster Response Trailer (DRT).
Extended Response Capabilities
(Better for our Community)
The Atascadero City Fire Department will be able to use the DRT for a variety of technical rescue emergencies. These emergencies include, but are not limited to, high angle rescue, confined space rescue, trench rescue and swift water rescue, earthquakes with building collapse, hazardous materials incidents, mass casualty incidents, airborne rescue support, large structure fires and terrorism related incidents.
Currently, the Atascadero City Fire Department responds to these technical rescue calls utilizing the two on-duty, staffed fire engines with a callback of the departments’ technical rescue team members. This system limits the ability to respond to other emergencies within the city. By having a dedicated DRT, the department would have all the equipment and tools necessary to mitigate the technical rescue emergency and allow the on-duty crews and equipment to be available for other emergency calls for service. Additionally, the DRT will be able to assist our neighboring fire departments, hospitals and utility companies that have limited technical response capabilities.
