Weather and other disastrous events often highlight the need for more emergency response vehicles with improved efficiency. Navistar and Terranova GTS have teamed up to fulfill that need.

During the Aid and International Development Forum Disaster Relief Summit in Washington, D.C., the two companies revealed the International DuraStar Multi-Purpose Vehicle. Designed to aid in disaster relief, the emergency vehicle is equipped with a variety of tools capable of responding to various disaster situations.

“This state-of-the-art multipurpose vehicle provides a critical resource to aid disaster relief efforts around the world,” said Tom Clevinger, Navistar senior vice president, Global Truck and Bus, in a press release.

Equipped with a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency-certified microbiological water purifier, the truck can purify 5,000 gallons of drinking water each day. In the event of a fire, the vehicle includes firefighting capabilities. For medical aid, the multipurpose vehicle is equipped with a mobile medical unit.
