The Summit County Sheriff’s Office has purchased two new snowmobiles for its search-and-rescue team and may soon have a building in Kamas to store the machines, Sheriff’s Office Capt. Alan Siddoway said.
"We need snowmobiles that we can depend on," Siddoway said about the $15,000 purchase.
Two sleds that were donated to the county several years ago are no longer adequate, he added.
"We still have the old ones," Siddoway said. "It’s depending on them at 3 o’clock in the morning on U150 that concerns us."
A building is currently under construction in Kamas where search-and-rescue volunteers expect to begin meeting and storing equipment in February.
