Police donate vehicle to help rescue group

Have your say

A FORMER police personnel carrier vehicle is being donated to Yorkshire and Lincolnshire Search and Rescue by South Yorkshire Police Authority.

The donation will assist YALSAR volunteers and equipment to move around efficiently to support the police and other emergency services during search operations.

YALSAR is a lowland search and rescue team which operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Made up entirely of volunteers, the team assists the emergency services across the region to undertake specialist searches and provide major incident support.

Founded in April 2010, the search and rescue organisation is a charitable non-profit organisation which relies on donations and sponsorship to exist.
