Helping Each Other

Posted March 27, 2014     WISAR purchased a brand new gurney to use for transporting victims off the island but found it was to heavy for our boat. We donated it to SJ John Rescue who can put it to much better use and received some much needed gear from them in exchange. A real Win/Win for both organizations!
