The Oyster River Fire Rescue received a generous donation of a Rescue Toboggan from Wendy Woodley, in memory of her late husband Gary. Gary loved skiing, was a mountain ambassador, and Wendy and Gary own a condo in the Alpine Village. This vital piece of equipment will allow the fire department to provide assistance to BCEHS to effectively respond to requests for medical assistance within the Alpine Village on Mt. Washington.
