Police Department UTV Mired in Stream

While operating on a call deep into the wooded area of Fort Dix the Joint Base Police Department got a Polaris UTV stuck in a stream bed after the 4 wheel drive failed.  Fire Station 3 crews used an 1800 pound portable gasoline powered chainsaw winch and a snatch block as well as recovery straps to remove the mired vehicle.  The operation took about 2 hours to complete with no damage to the UTV and no injuries.
