Dale Jorgensen President of Pensar said ” we sure got a shock today”. Our team came to the hall at 8:00 this morning to get set up for training and found that two of our search and rescue trailers had been broken into.
Thieves made off with a 1000 watt Honda generator serial # EZGA 1163235 and a number of gas cans that we use for our UTV’s. Jorgensen adds “It’s certainly disheartening considering we are a volunteer and self funded organization. Everyone here gives so much to help others.” Now besides putting money out for a new generator we will be looking at adding more security measures which all costs money. We are hopeful that someone out in the area will hear what has happened and call police or crime stoppers with any information. so that we get our generator back.”
