The mission of the Annual QRU Fundraiser Event is to create awareness of the need for support and unite the Magic Valley community in support of and funding of our rural emergency response teams.
The majority of these men and women work on a volunteer basis while purchasing many of their much needed supplies and training from their own pockets. They use their own vehicles a lot of the time and leave “day jobs” to respond to emergencies as they arise. The QRU’s are the first line of response to many of our outdoor enthusiast activity areas and are often times behind the scenes of appreciation. Injuries or accidents suffered by outdoor enthusiasts and travelers on rural highways and roads often occur in areas far from a local hospital and emergency services. Without these units being available in rural areas, response from an emergency team could take over an hour or more in some areas.
We are helping these QRU’s in hopes that if or when we need them, they will be able to be there with the equipment and training needed to save our lives and the lives of our loved ones!
