Tayside 4×4 Response was established following the back to back severe winter weather periods of 2010/2011 which made it difficult for many vital services to function. Our aim is to assist Category 1 & 2 services and voluntary welfare services by providing vehicles and equipment during adverse weather and/or road conditions, natural disasters such as flooding and any other situation where vehicular access is difficult or impossible for standard road-going vehicles.

We form part of the National 4X4 Response Network and primarily support the Perth & Kinross, Dundee and Angus areas. However, as with the other regional 4×4 response teams we can go where needed and assist our neighbouring teams.
