As the threat of wildfires increases, Ford Motor Company and Bronco Wild Fund are donating a Bronco Badlands® SUV with Sasquatch® off-road package to the National Park Service for use in Bandelier National Monument, where it will operate a firefighting command vehicle.
This one-of-a-kind Bronco will be deployed to Bandelier to expand their current capabilities in designated wilderness that lacks infrastructure and is difficult to access. It will provide wildland firefighters with the ability to go deep into the wilderness with reliable communications that allow for better fire detection and tracking, command and control, and crew coordination resulting in more effective firefighting.
Upfitted by Darley, a company dedicated to serving the world’s fire and emergency services, this vehicle combines superb off-road capabilities with advanced first-responder technology including satellite, cellular and radio for communications in even the most remote areas, lithium energy in-vehicle power system, cloud software stack, video streaming and a quickly deployable quadcopter robotic drone. From providing emergency power to delivering essential goods and deploying vehicles, Ford’s history of supporting fire response and disaster relief is as true to our heritage as the Blue Oval itself.
