CAMI Proposes Amphibious Responder Ideal for Typhoon Haiyan Relief Efforts
Date:11/20/2013

Ridgeland, South Carolina (PRWEB) November 20, 2013

Super Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) is yet another example of a natural disaster that leaves search and rescue teams struggling to save lives from high water and a debris-filled terrain. Cool Amphibious Manufacturers International (CAMI) has invented Amphibious Responder Search and Rescue (AR-SAR) vehicles to provide local, state and national government leaders the help needed to rescue and save lives after events such as this. CAMI has made contact with their Amphibious Responder owners in the region to see if they can provide support.

“CAMI is deeply saddened by the loss of lives and destruction in the wake of the Super Typhoon Haiyan,” said John Giljam, President of CAMI. “Our thoughts go out to all of those affected.”

As described in the news, there are cries for help and pleas for assistance coming from so many after Typhoon Haiyan. In an interview on November 11, 2013, Bettina Luescher of the World Food Programme told CNN’s Richard Quest that the major problem they are having is “logistics on the ground; we can’t get to the people…. Aid is arriving from all over the world but getting it to the people, that is the real hard thing.”

In the CNN article “General asks for U.S. warships in typhoon relief,” which was published on November 12, 2013, US Marine Corp Brig. General Paul Kennedy told CNN’s Barbara Starr what he needs most are amphibious vehicles that can climb over debris piles. “Vehicles can carry supplies and move over and through piles of debris to distribution points where aid is needed most,” he said.

In addition, Wolf Blitzer of CNN’s The Situation Room made the following statement that aired on November 12, 2013: “Well, officially, they are going to tell you they need everything. Put I spoke to General Paul Kennedy earlier today from the Philippines, the man in charge of the relief operation on the ground. He wants amphibious ships. He wants those smaller, that smaller capability as well to get into these tough areas.”

“Response crews working to relieve Typhoon Haiyan victims need an amphibious vehicle that can traverse these landscapes, to get the aid to remote areas cut off by water and debris,” Giljam continues. “In the Philippines, there are few bridges to connect most of the islands. Sadly, there are people sitting on those islands in desperate need of help.”

The AR-SAR is a purpose-built vehicle, unlike any other in the world. The chief engineer at CAMI provides decades of custom fire and rescue vehicle manufacturing experience, which is infused in the Amphibious Responder’s design.

With the AR-SAR, relief supplies – food, water, medical aid, tools and equipment – can be brought into areas unable to be reached by conventional vehicles. It can even operate in winds where helicopters cannot be safely deployed; this can bring relief and rescue workers to the most affected areas hours or days before other traditional means. The Amphibious Responder was designed with a modular footprint; tires or tracks are interchangeable, as needed for the variation of terrains. Another benefit is that it can be deployed and transported anywhere around the world via truck, ship, plane or rail.

In summary, the Amphibious Responder provides the following benefits and capabilities: land and water rescue operations, firefighting capability (optional), mobile ambulatory capability (optional), unsinkable floatation foam, forklift and cargo pallet loadable for rapid transportation of relief supplies, and locally available parts and service.
