Search & Rescue Rides

 

December 27, 2017



Valley County Search & Rescue will once again be teaming up with local wrecker services to provide rides to revelers on New Year’s Eve throughout the county.

For a ride home on New Year’s Eve, contact the following who are donating their time and services:

Doug Cook, Glenn’s Automotive, 263-1249 (Nashua, Park Grove and Fort Peck area.)

Whiskey Isakson, Search and Rescue, 263-2505

Jeron Wesen, Search and Rescue, 263-0265

Dave Ahlstedt, Search and Rescue, 270-6215

Cat Fisher, Search and Rescue, 648-7357

Tom Pewitt, Hi-Line Collision, 263-2154

Tom and Dawn Thompson, Thompson & Sons, 263-7265.

Area law enforcement agencies have announced increased patrols to discourage drunk driving incidents. Rides are free and donations will help fund future Search & Rescue operations. According to outgoing Valley County Sheriff’s Deputy Matt Remmich, “It is our intention of proactively deploying extra officers on the roads to increase incentive for folks to plan a sober ride home. DUI arrests are a part of an ongoing effort to reduce deadly drinking and driving behavior in the state.”


VCSO Deputy Chris Richter, who is also the DUI Task Force Coordinator, told the Courier, “This provides free services for a sober ride home during New Year’s Eve celebrations. Each year has been a success and the annual number of requested services keeps growing. Last year, the Search and Rescue provided 245 free rides.”
