President Kwasny said in a statement released today: "Although the morale of the Wausaukee Rescue Squad has been devastated by this shocking theft of a significant share of our limited financial resources, our members have continued to answer all of the usual range of emergency calls. We remain fully committed to service we have always provided for our squad area residents. We remain fully committed to service we have always provided for our squad area residents."
