Surrey 4×4 Response is an organisation formed of 4×4 owners who volunteer their time and personal vehicles to assist a variety of services to Local Authorities, Emergency Services and other Volunteer Agencies.
Primarily we work within the areas covered by SURREY COUNTY COUNCIL & SURREY POLICE but we also cover SOUTHWEST & SOUTH LONDON. As a member of NATIONAL 4X4 RESPONSE network we are also able to provide support to other regional members and services in neighbouring counties.
Principally this is providing reliable transport in times of major emergencies and severe weather (snow & ice, gales, heavy rain and floods).
This can be to transport essential personnel or supplies to areas that would be hard or impossible to reach in normal vehicles, and also in support of emergency rest centres set up by local authorities.
We can also provide assistance when an emergency response organisation’s own vehicle assets have been depleted by the demands made on them.
We can be called by any Category One or Two Responder as defined by the Civil Contingencies Act 2004, and by voluntary agencies with whom we have an agreement.
