Central Okanagan Search and Rescue has a new primary response vehicle that is ready to hit the road.

COSAR picked up a new Silverado HD Crew Cab Wednesday at Kelowna Chevrolet. The volunteer organization has been looking to replace their 1999 Ford F350 for some time.

“We support many local organizations such as the food bank, Canucks Autism Network, Habitat for Humanity and Okanagan College,” says Kelowna Chevrolet Dealer Partner Ian Speckman.

“Search and rescue is a natural fit.”

Fifty per cent of the truck’s cost was funded by Kelowna Chevrolet and 50 per cent was funded by public donations to COSAR.

“COSAR is heavily dependent upon the support of the community to do what we do. As such the generosity of Kelowna Chevrolet is greatly appreciated and it will help ensure that we are able to respond in a timely manner to the 80 plus tasks that we respond to every year,” added COSAR president Brad Trites.
