Salt Spring Island Search and Rescue said they are “extremely disappointed” after several of their volunteers’ personal vehicles were vandalized while they were in a training session Tuesday night.

The group said their members were inside the Salt Spring Island Search and Rescue Hall on Fulford-Ganges Road when at least five parked vehicles were vandalized across the street. Salt Spring Island Search and Rescue said the damage will come to several thousands of dollars.

“This shameful act targeting emergency response volunteers has been reported to the Salt Spring RCMP,” the group wrote in a Facebook post.

Salt Spring Island Search and Rescue is asking any witnesses who saw any suspicious activity across the street from the search and rescue hall between 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. on Jan. 15 to contact police at 250-537-5555.
