WHEATLAND (IOWA) Wheatland Volunteer Fire Department is the recipient of a $500 Iowa Network Services (INS) Charity Grant, plus a $500 matching contribution from F&B Communications, the local telecommunications provider in Wheatland.

The grant funds will be used by the fire department to purchase a foam unit for their new pumper truck. Better than water, foam can extinguish a fire more quickly and cut-down on the amount of water damage.

“It is important for our local fire departments to have good, modern equipment,” said Ken Laursen, F&B Communications general manager. “We are proud to support our local volunteers by contributing to this cause.”

F&B Communications is one of 156 Iowa independent telephone company member-owners of INS, which helps to provide advanced telecommunications and data services. INS established the grant program to bring INS closer to its member companies and customers. Charity Grants are awarded on a quarterly basis.

F&B Communications is the local telecommunications provider offering telephone, cable television, digital broadcast satellite, dial-up Internet, high-speed DSL Internet and wireless PCS services to customers in the Bennett, Calamus, Delmar, Lowden and Wheatland exchanges and surrounding areas.

The charity grant program is open to non-profit organizations in the F&B Communications service area. Grant applications are available at the business office in Wheatland.
