Demilitarized Humvee Gets a Second Chance to Serve

Students in the Auto Body and Customizing Program at the Academy at Ward Technical Center in Riverhead were asked to refurbish a demilitarized Humvee by the Southampton Police Department. This was a great opportunity for the students to apply the skills they are learning and work on a vehicle that will now be used for rescues and storm response. They used various hand and air tools, sanders, and special professional refurbishing equipment and techniques because of the special construction material of a Hummer. The project took them five months to complete.
