A UTV for your FD

Could your local fire department put one of these to good use?

On the eve of its 70th corporate anniversary, Daedong Industrial, which is the South Korean company behind the KIOTI brand, is offering to donate one of its Mechron 2200PS UTVs to a deserving fire department in the U.S. and Canada. It’s doing so with its “Shout Out” social media promotion and video contest.

Here’s how the company’s press release describes the competition.

“Organizations interested in participating must create a video explaining who they are, their location, why they need a MECHRON 2200PS and how it will be used if they win. The video should be under three minutes in length. The promotion is now open for participants to complete an entry form and upload their video to the KITOTI tractor Facebook page, under the ‘Shout Out’ tab. One submission will be counted per organization.

“Once the video entry is submitted, voters can navigate through the gallery of submissions on KIOTI’s Facebook page to cast their vote. On December 1, 2017 at 11:59 P.M. (EST), voting will close and the organizational video with the most votes will win the MECHRON 2200PS grand prize. The winning first responder organization will be announced within 30 days of the promotion’s end.”

If you are part of a local fire department and would like to join in the competition to win that Mechron, look for more information on the brand’s website,
