We provide logistical 4 wheel drive support in times of severe weather, disaster or when 4-wheel drive is the only solution to:

Herefordshire 4x4 Response Group covers the whole of Herefordshire county but is also available to offer assistance to other Response Groups in the country.

We are members of Herefordshire County Voluntary Emergency Committee and offer 24/7 assistance with:

  • Solution Evacuation
  • Transportation of goods
  • Transportation of personnel
  • Recovery of stranded vehicles
  • Searches and support when road conditions prevent normal access for vital services


In addition to making their own 4x4 vehicles available to the Group, members have also created a mobile control room trailer that can be moved to the co-ordination site for any emergency.


All requests for help must be made to the Duty Emergency Planning Officer at Joint Emergency Planning Unit for Herefordshire Council and Herefordshire Primary Care Trust, who will in turn contact us as per our pre-arranged agreement.
