MCSAR Fundraiser for a new rescue boat.

November of  2017, our rescue boat was totaled in an auto accident. Our team was rear-ended returning from Miami where the boat was being refurbished. Unfortunately, the insurance did not cover the cost of a new boat. The vessel enabled to respond to and assist other agencies within the county as well as surrounding areas and was able to be utilized in natural disaster relief efforts particularly in flooding, bridge outage situations and hurricane relief. We are currently raising money to replace this vessel as soon as possible. The cost of the new boat is $38,000.

Introducing "Project Lifesaver"!
4/6/2014  1917hrs
Project Lifesaver is an innovative and rapidly growing program aiding the victims and families suffering Alzheimer's Disease and related disorders such as Down's Syndrome and Autism Spectrum Disorders. Project Lifesaver uses state-of-the-art technology employing wristband transmitters to locate wandering and lost adults and children. Over 5,000,000 people in the USA have Alzheimer's. That number will triple by 2050. Well over 50% of these people wander and become lost. A lost person with Alzheimer's or other dementia represents a critical emergency as nearly half of them will die and many can become injured or fall victim to predators if they are not located within 24 hours. The number of people, families and communities experiencing this risk will grow dramatically in this decade. If you are not yet touched in some way by Alzheimer's or related disease, chances are you will be within the next several years. You will find it among neighbors, your friends, co-workers and their families, and perhaps within your own family.
