A fundraising campaign by Arrowsmith Search and Rescue (ASAR) got a boost from the Ocean Idlers Car Club, who donated $1,500.
The money will help ASAR replace one of its initial response vehicles, according to a news release.
The vehicles are first to arrive on a search and rescue scene, according to Ken Neden, SAR manager. Neden estimated the cost of replacement at approximately $100,000, with approximately $25,000 committed so far.
The initial response vehicles are part of the reason ASAR has sped up its response times over the past decade or so. They are equipped to begin setup for numerous rescue scenarios.
