Two Polaris Rangers provided for flood-ravaged West Virginia
Polaris Industries has announced the company is working with West Virginia Dealers, Keefer’s and Route 119 Powersports, to provide two Ranger Side-by-Side vehicles to EMS and other rescue services so they can carry water and help families affected by the flooding. Pennsylvania dealership, Hernley’s, also has joined the cause and sent a group of people with relief packages to help with the clean up.
“What has happened in southern West Virginia is a great tragedy,” says Daniel Storm, district sales manager for Polaris. “The dealerships are happy to help support an area who has been highly supportive of the sport of ATV riding. We hope the efforts can help this community get back on their feet quicker.”
One of the hardest areas hit was Gilbert, WV, home of the Hatfield McCoy National Trailfest. The flood was the largest natural disaster in the history of the town with approximately 4000 homes sustaining significant damage or completely destroyed in the county. Four other counties in both West Virginia and Eastern Kentucky also sustained significant dwelling & business losses.
