Do you own a car with 4 Wheel Drive or AWD but not necessarily want to go off road? We cater for everything from all wheel drive estates to vans and beyond.
Our Volunteers keep essential services to Leicestershire and Rutland moving in times of Major Incidents and Adverse weather. We provide a network of volunteers, which include members with well equipped 4 wheel drive vehicles, that are able to respond to situations likely to cause danger to the general public. Becoming an official member of a 4×4 Response charity can be a sometimes challenging but rewarding experience.
Leicestershire and Rutland 4×4 Response have two levels of membership.
Once initial checks have been completed and new members have attended an online meet and greet with two of the management team only then will a payment be asked for.
Members with capable vehicles willing to assist during times of inclement weather. Leicestershire and Rutland provide all responders with a long sleeve reflective blouson which complies with the UK’s safety requirements as well as an embroidered polo T-shirt with responders name and LE number. There is an initial joining fee of £35 for the first year, followed by £20 per year thereafter, details about how to pay are covered in the application form.
Support is for people who do not have a 4×4 or are not confident of their 4×4 driving skills in adverse conditions. Generally would only be called to support a long term incident or where 4×4 capability/skills not needed or to help with incident management (e.g. controller). Support members will be issued with an LE number and a light weight T-shirt and long sleeve reflective blouson, however, these will not be embroidered with the members name or LE number just the groups logo. There is an initial joining fee of £20 for the first year, followed by £10 per year thereafter, details about how to pay are covered in the application form.
