ABSTRACT
The Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) has chosen Toyota Hilux pickups, through leasing company Tuskerdirect, as its patrol vehicles for its Beach Rescue Initiative. Twenty new Hilux EX double cabs will patrol both popular promenades and remote beaches. The pick-ups will carry full emergency gear, defibrillators, spinal collars, oxygen and other medicinal supplies. The RNLI transport department conducted a comparative study of 4x4 contenders from seven manufacturers with operational requirements playing a major part in the decision-making process.
