Ocooch Mountain Rescue accepted a check on Sept. 2 from the George Family Foundation in the amount of $30,000—the full amount needed for the purchase of the Rugged Terrain Extrication Vehicle (RTEV).

The George Family Foundation is a private foundation established in 1996 by Roy L. and Geraldine E. George of Prairie du Chien. The mission of the George Family Foundation is to assist non-profit organizations in Crawford County, who have a vision and a plan to better the long-term quality of life in Crawford County. Each year, the foundation accepts written grants by organizations located in Crawford County.

Ocooch Mountain Rescue was chosen this year to be the recipient of one of these grants. The family generously chose to fund the entire amount requested to purchase the RTEV, which is needed to enable the organization to reach those people in need of help and medical attention in heavily wooded hunting areas, bluffs and farmlands. This RTEV will be used to aid services all over Crawford County, when needed and available.
