Featherlite Trailers help Billy Graham Rapid Response Team to deliver hope at crisis sites across the U.S.

CRESCO, Iowa (August 7, 2017) — Featherlite Trailers designed and built three custom truck bodies to help Charlotte, NC-based Billy Graham Rapid Response Team (RRT) meet several needs, wherever a crisis may take them.

Whether a natural disaster (tornado, hurricane, flood, etc.) or manmade crisis (mass shooting, terrorist attack, civil unrest, etc.) is involved, the mission remains the same: Provide a comfortable chair, a cup of coffee or water and a prayer for firefighters, EMTs, police and others — an oasis amidst chaos, stress and long hours.

“We typically will try to locate them as close to the hot zone or the center of where an incident happened as possible — whether it’s in Alabama, California or any of the other 20-plus states we’ve been to,” said Jack Munday, International Director, Billy Graham Rapid Response Team. 

Mark Ackley, Featherlite trailers segment sales manager, said: “Through a great team effort between Featherlite engineers, and RRT leadership, we customized 40-foot vehicles that can accommodate a lot of different situations and needs. The units include bench seats, slideouts, permanent tables, TV monitor, galley, bathroom and other features to provide the solution the Billy Graham team wanted.”
