CLEAR LAKE, IOWA – The Clear Lake Fire Department has a new rescue vehicle thanks to a donation.

On Monday, the Clear Lake Fire Department announced that it has a new 2016 Polaris Ranger 900 Crew Cab UTV. The vehicle was donated, the department says, by Mark and Diane Holt.

According to the Clear Lake fire department, “this Ranger is equipped with a heated cab to allow the crew to stay warm when working on the lake in the winter. It also is equipped with tracks and a winch to almost ensure the Ranger will not get stuck in the snow or mud. The tracks allow us a vehicle that is capable of traversing on the lake across snow drifts in bad weather to reach a snowmobile accident victim or maybe a medical issue an ice fisherman might be having. With 68 horse power the Ranger has plenty of power to get the job done. The 1000 pound box capacity will allow the department to swap the tracks for wheels in summer and fall and put the grass fire fighting pump in the box and use the vehicle for grass and field fires where off road capabilities are needed.”

The vehicle appears to retail brand new at around $16,000 and up.
