The Foundation for Rural Service (FRS) recently announced the recipients of 23 grants totaling $104,000 to advance the quality of life and enable economic development in communities served by members of NTCA–The Rural Broadband Association.
Wahkiakum West Telephone has announced Wahkiakum Fire District Number 3 as one of these grant recipients. Wahkiakum Fire District 3 received $4,797 to purchase three Infrared Wi-Fi enabled cameras to be used for technologically advanced fire detection and for search and rescue emergencies.
“Especially during the ongoing pandemic, the work or projects these grant recipients are going to accomplish will make a significant impact in their communities,” said FRS Executive Director Pam Becker. “It is more important than ever before to expand telemedicine options and ensure that students have access to technology. We are grateful for all our recipients’ hard work, the NTCA members that endorsed them and continue to help their communities, and to our grant sponsor Womble Bond Dickinson.”
