County wide response

No matter what the resource required, Lincolnshire Community Assistance Team are always available to support emergency services in a variety of tasks.

Skilled 4×4 division

From moving essential workers and equipment during periods of bad weather, to dragging fallen trees off the counties roads, our 4×4 responders are a valuable resource to the group.

If you have a 4×4 you’re most probably quite capable in using it to it’s full potential and would very likely assist in bad weather or difficult terrain. However, L-CAT has a backup system directly linked to the emergency system. With your 4×4 and skills and L-CAT emergency service backup what a formidable team that would make!

Why not join us to assist your community and emergency services in times of bad weather or off tarmac access.
There will be 4×4 driver training before you can be deployed with your 4×4 with annual refreshers at one of our training grounds.

This is your opportunity to make a difference and join Lincolnshire Community Assistance Team
