DELMAR FIRE DEPARTMENT RECEIVES FUNDS FOR CPR MANNEQUINS

WHEATLAND (IOWA) Delmar 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 Delmar.

The grant funds will be used by the fire department to purchase CPR training mannequins. The new mannequins will replace current models that have been in service for more than 20 years.

"Delmar is fortunate to have an active volunteer fire department and EMS service," said Ken Laursen, F&B Communications general manager. "Having the modern tools to provide training in rescue techniques is important."


F&B Communications is one of 156 Iowa independent telephone company member-owners of INS, which helps to provide advanced telecommunications and data services.

"We are proud to support community organizations that enhance the quality of life for citizens in our serving areas," Laursen said.

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.
