The Western Sno-Riders recently led a fundraiser to help purchase a new rescue sleigh for the Bay of Islands Search and Rescue team, and Poole Althouse made a donation of $500 towards this initiative.
The new Rescue Sleigh is fully enclosed, has lights and a heater. It is almost two feet longer and one foot wider than the current one they have. The SAR attendant and the patient are inside with plenty of room, heat and protected from the elements. All of which are very important if you have to travel a long distance while injured in less than favorable weather conditions.
