Thanks to them, we now have our much needed Command Post due to the City of Miramichi donating an old rescue fire truck that was not active in their fleet and the $2000 donation from the Newcastle Rotary Club for modifying it to search and rescue needs. We’re still accepting donations as there is still lots to be done to turn this into a fully functioning emergency search mobile.
It doesn’t always have to be money as a donation. Things such as electrical, cupboards, painting, snow removal and storage or simply a place to plug it in for the cold months are welcome donations as well. Any or all of the above certainly welcome!
Remember, we’re all volunteers who do this out of the goodness of our hearts and we couldn’t do it if it weren’t for people such as yourselves. Now we can ensure our own vehicle and not have to be dependent on personal members vehicles and possible liabilities and now have a guaranteed response vehicle.
We look forward to serving you in 2014. Happy Holidays from Miramichi Ground Search and Rescue.
