Thanks. And to bring this thread (somewhat) back on topic, does anyone
here know just how long a country rescue squad is required to hold onto
and use surplus MVs before they are allowed to dispose of them, and when
they do so, is there any rule/law that prevents them from holding an
auction/raffle for the vehicles as a fundraiser? The idea came up as a
way to help raise funds for some new equipment, and I told them I'd ask
you guys.
