One can hardly count all the screws, nuts, and bolts that are in our newly constructed building. Most of them are hidden behind the walls, not intended to be seen. But, the ones in the pictured sculpture showing an EMS crew in action hold a special meaning for us and are prominently displayed in our lobby.
They were donated to PFARS by Jason Kenwood and his 12-year-old daughter Alissa, who turned their hobby of creating art out of recycled metal into the company, Deskpets.
Jason and Alissa hold a special bond with PFARS. Jason’s brother (Alissa’s uncle), Michael Kenwood, was a valued member of PFARS who lost his life during a water rescue at the height of Hurricane Irene.
Jason and Alissa have been ardent supporters of PFARS, and we are honored to put their donated sculpture on display in our lobby. ... See MoreSee Less

PFARS volunteers John Griffith and Allie Persky showed off our facility, ambulances, and heavy rescue truck while fielding some great questions about what we do. John and Allie both joined PFARS while in high school at PDS and have been with us ever since! ... See MoreSee Less
