Station 106 was very pleased to receive this donation earlier this year.
Twin Anchors owner Todd Kyllo said “he and many others are glad to have the RCMSAR volunteers out on the water (as they) have much better equipment and training to assist the paramedics.”
“Along with the houseboat companies”, Kyllo said “the RCMSAR station is appreciated by other boaters and cabin owners. Their presence on the lake is especially welcome as there have been fewer RCMP and coast guard patrols on the lake in recent years.”
“The donation will help keep the station’s two boats out on the water by helping to cover fuel costs” said Pat Gau of the Shuswap Lifeboat Society.
2020 has been one of the busiest search and rescue seasons on the lakes for Station 106 Shuswap, with the cost at the diesel pumps very high.
