Introducing TIREBALLS "RUN - FLAT" Tire Protection System for Off Road Rescue Vehicles!

ATV and UTV Run - Flat Tires

Rescuers asked for them.  Now, 'TIREBALLS', a virtual "FLAT - PROOF"  tire system has arrived!

///EMERGENCY EQUIPMENT and TIRESBALLS are proud to announce a set of "RUN - FLAT" tires will be provided to the Kentucky Dept. of Agriculture's Farm & Home Safety Training Program.  This "FLAT - PROOF" tire system will be installed in the tires on this 'All Terrain Res-Q' off road patient transport trailer used in the "ATV Safety & Rescue Training Program" presented to thousands of emergency responders statewide throughout Kentucky every year.

The TIRE BALL® Company and ///EMERGENCY EQUIPMENT are pleased to announce this proven technology is available for distribution to all public and private emergency responders. Now, Fire / Rescue / EMS / EMA / SAR and Law Enforcement agencies can benefit from the same advantage off road racers and special warfare operators have enjoyed for years.  With TIREBALLS added to your off road response vehicle or trailer, your tires are virtually Flat–Proof!

*    Tires containing the TIREBALLS tire protection system use a multiple air cell design which allows puncturing of several cells without total loss of air pressure.  As hazards are encountered, cells are individually deflated, while remaining cells expand to fill the void.  As a result, off road rescuers safely continue emergency operations without stopping to repair a flat.


*    Tires containing the TIREBALLS tire protection protection system safely allows your off road rescue vehicles to run with lower inflation pressures.  Lower air pressure in tires results in expanding the tire’s contact patch.  This improves your off road traction, while producing increased acceleration with shorter braking distances.  Overall, your rescuers benefit from safer off road emergency vehicle operations.

*    Tires containing the TIREBALLS protection system virtually eliminates tire sidewall instability.  By acting as an inner tire bead lock, even at reduced tire pressures the multiple air cell design exerts internal pressure on tire sidewalls.  This pressure holds the tire bead in place under lateral loading conditions, preventing the “rollover effect” and total deflation that frequently occurs in under inflated tires during emergency off road operations.

While scarred, the TireBall held and the driver won the event!

*    Tires containing TIREBALLS tire protection system produces an enhanced suspension effect.  When the tire encounters an obstacle, air pressure is progressively increased at the point of contact as the multiple air cells are compressed.  This produces a smoother ride, avoiding the “bounce effect” and protects your rims from sustaining severe impact damage. 
*    Tires containing TIREBALLS tire protection system allows emergency responders to 'accomplish the mission' and return to base where tire repairs are made before the next emergency off-road rescue mission is dispatched.

///EMERGENCY EQUIPMENT is now running TIREBALLS 'RUN - FLAT' ATV & UTV tire protection system on our demo 'All Terrain Res-Q' (ATR) off road patient transport trailer.  This trailer is towed by a 2011 Polaris 4X4 Ranger 800 XP / LE / EPS with 'MedLite EMS / Rescue' insert for multiple patient transports.  You can see this off road rescue vehicle in action during the upcoming WARRIOR DASH, June 23, 2012, at Pope's Ranch, in Marion County, Kentucky.

As "zoned out" Warrior Dash participants pass by, this specially outfitted off-road emergency medical response unit is standing-by on an access trail.  When the call for aid comes in, this 'All Wheel Drive' Polaris 800 XP (extreme performace) UTV with 'MedLite' bed insert and 'All Terrain Res-Q' patient transport trailer responds.  This combination rig safely transports two back-boarded patients in basket stretchers, each with a Paramedic or EMT, and one "walking wounded" patient seat-belted in the cab with the operator.  With it's 1500 Lb. payload capacity and 2000 Lb. towing capacity, that's a total of three patients and three rescuers safely transported by one totally AWESOME off-road rescue vehicle!
