Search & Rescue
Argo lets your search team cover more ground faster, with less foot work required to explore the out-of-the-way niches of rough terrain. Add-on equipment such as winches and stretchers give team members the tools and the safety to extricate and evacuate injured parties and get them home safely. 

Emergency Medical Services
Argo's are in service in extreme terrain with ambulance roles, providing the mobility to get through all types of obstacles to reach the injury site. When time is of the essence, Argo lets you take the most direct route. The add-on stretcher attachment and built-in resistance to roll-overs means patients are delivered securely and quickly to get the medical attention they need.

Remote Fire Fighting
When fire breaks out, there’s no time to wait for heavy equipment to find its way in. Argo's are ready in an instant to deploy firefighters, complete with the spray and foaming equipment to suppress fire on the spot. Put the same system to work to protect vulnerable sites with fire retardants to help prevent fires before they start. 

Hazmat Response
Wherever dangerous spills or leaks occur, Argo gets your response team on-site fast to keep the hazard contained and let the clean-up begin. It’s tough work, but with capacity for a crew of 6 plus while towing another 2,000 lb (907 kg) of equipment and supplies behind, Argo lets you keep tough problems under control.
