Before you set out

Ensure you have plenty of fuel and that you and your vehicle are prepared for the task at hand – remember that we are likely to be transporting people or equipment.

Your vehicle must display ‘4×4 Response’ markings to allow our service users to identify you as one of our responders. Call-sign markings (NH-xxx) are optional.
