This 1999 John Deere 4 x 6 Gator was a gift from the American Smokeless Tobacco Company for use in accessing persons in need off road and along the Cedar Valley Nature Trail.  This trail follows a former railroad line and is inaccessible to normal vehicle's throughout much of it's route.  The Gator is equipped with a specially designed "Med-Bed" to permit patient's to be sured either on a backboard or in a basket type stretcher while still giving medical personnel access for treatment and care.  A very special thanks goes to the American Smokeless Tobacco Company, which has expanded this program nationwide to other public safety agencies.
