The Tyler Mountain ATV Rescue Team was organized in the fall of 2005 after members went to the Wood County Fire School. The team could see that there was a need not just in our community but Kanawha County as well. Just after the members decided to form the team, word had spread to the other local fire department members. Then just under a month, the team was called into action in the St. Albans area to assist the Sheriff’s Department and St. Alban’s West Side Fire Department in locating a missing couple.
The Team is under the leadership of Firefighter James Hill. The basic requirements for firefighter to be on the team are:
- Be a member of the Tyler Mt Fire Department
- Have had the ATV Search and Rescue Classes
- 1st Aid or EMT – B
- Firefighter 1
- Basic Haz Mat
