    Kawasaki Mule Used For Beach Patrol in Kauai

    Kauai Fire Department

    Lydgate Beach Park on the island of Kauai is a great location for snorkeling in the protected swim area, but dangerous waves break on the outer reefs and coral and rocks create a few hazards that require the beach to be under the watch of lifeguards from the Kauai Fire Department (KFD).

    With a few miles of beach to cover and only one tower, the lifeguards needed a way to monitor the entire beach. The drivable area of the beach was not conducive to even a small pickup, so they decided to try a 4×4 utility vehicle instead. The Kauai Fire Department selected a 2007 Kawasaki Mule 3010, and could not be happier with the results.

    The Mule carries their rescue surfboard, first aid equipment and other rescue supplies. The 4×4 Mule greatly extends the normal reach of the KFD lifeguards so they can easily cover the entire beach.

    The Mule features a four-stroke engine, selectable four-wheel drive, an automatic transmission, bench seat and tilting cargo bed. But the size and off-road capabilities are what makes the Mule invaluable.

    Modifications

    The continuous beach environment is brutal on vehicles. The Kauai Fire Department Mule was lined with “Lava-Liner” (similar to Line-X) to help prevent rust from taking over. The Mule is also washed down at the end of each day.
