Our station has been on call throughout the pandemic, and several rescues have been performed during this period. In the last 12 months we have been on 17 missions. On the water and classroom training has been slowed, to curtail some interactions, but enough to maintain our skills. As you may know all our fundraing events had to be cancelled, however the need for funding has not changed.Our three projects are:Boat lift replacement – 2022, Fast Response Craft Replacement – 2027. These are Capital projects and our station needs to fundraise 50% of these. Our regular operating expenses of about $45,000 annually and require about 25% fundraising by our volunteers.HOW CAN YOU HELP….. below some options for you to consider.
