Protecting our first responders.
The BearCat is operated by First Responders to respond to emergencies and perform rescue operations that other vehicles simply cannot. We are sure the vehicle will be an asset to your community and should instill pride in your Fire and EMS teams and your citizenry that you have made the decision to be prepared. While the Lenco BearCat was developed as a police vehicle, the continual evolution of the product; it’s design, equipment, features and expanding capabilities has made it the most versatile, multi-purpose response & rescue vehicle on the market. It has been embraced by First Responders because it has demonstrated its value as a life-saving piece of equipment that helps them get their job done and return home safely to their families.
“The role this specialty vehicle played in the emergency response configuration for this disaster (Hurricane Irma) may never be fully appreciated, but it proved one way to address the great concern public safety officers have regarding restricted response.”

“When an active shooter is on the loose, the right sort of armored vehicle can be indispensable.”

“It was the protection provided by an armored vehicle that allowed police to patiently wait outside as they tried to negotiate with the suspect, instead of storming in, putting everyone’s lives at risk.”
