Aircooled Interstate Rescue Squad AIRS

Thought it might be good to include this link here with the maps & emergency numbers. This is a link to the Aircooled Emergency Rescue Squad aka AIRS which is a site dedicated to helping & finding help for aircooled vw's when travelling. http://www.type2.com/rescue/

A.I.R.S is great, I've been a member for years and it completely saved my bacon in the middle of nowhere tennesee on the BABE rally last year.

Scroll to the bottom of the SJVWC web site and you will see that A.I.R.S. has been there since I joined the club in 2005. I "think" Jack put them up there when he first started the site only my 2CENTS   sjvwc.ico

 I just signed up, heard about it, but thought it would be good to put some help out there..

Good to know it is still in existence!  I thought with less and less VW's out there, the rescue site would have collapsed.

Who knows, maybe I would need it on extended travels. =whiteflag

Bud's note states it is located at the bottom of our site, but I did not see it... is it still around?

Curious, how many people have signed up?

Chow.

I think they are the ones I tried to sign up in 2017 and found out it was defunct.

I think VanAlert is very similar to what AIRS was.

It seems to be active, at least the webpage is paying $ for it to be there...
Contacts still seem to be good.
Will check out the site you mentioned...
Thanks Anthony
