The City of Benton Harbor purchased two Quick Response Vehicles (QRVs). The QRVs were designed to have ongoing patrols that would decrease response time for first responders in emergency situations, including rescue, fire suppression and medical emergencies. The vehicles use of state-of-the-art fire suppression methods, including compressed foam and fire suppression disk will greatly reduce damage to properties and exposure to hazardous situations for public safety personnel. The City has realized a reduction in personnel costs and increased efficiencies as a result of the QRVs.
FY2014 UPDATE: During the current fiscal year, one of the two QRVs was sold at auction. The remaining QRV continues to be used daily to respond to emergency calls.
