Land Rover built an SUV designed to handle any disaster situation.

Jaguar added some extra touches to its Discovery SUV to create an emergency car for the Red Cross. Aptly called Project Hero, the car made its debut at the Geneva Motor Show, which opened to the public March 9.

Scroll down for a closer look:

The SUV comes with a drone that can magnetically attach to the roof even while the car is moving.

Land Rover says the drone can be used to transmit live footage to emergency response teams in disaster situations like earthquakes, landslides, and avalanches. It can also be used to rescue survivors or missing people.

The car is equipped with a sliding floor that can be used as an additional work surface.

The trunk comes with charging ports in case you’re out in the field for a significant amount of time. There are multiple plug options to accommodate different regions.

Perhaps the biggest asset of the Project Hero SUV is the amount of storage it offers.

Project Hero is based on a Discovery with a 3.0-liter TD6 engine. Starting in June, it will be based at the Austrian Red Cross training center in Erzberg, a mountainous mining area. The drone will be used in simulations.
