CALAMUS FIRE DEPARTMENT RECEIVES CHARITY GRANT, MATCHING FUNDS

WHEATLAND (IOWA) Calamus Volunteer Fire Department is the recipient of a $375 Iowa Network Services (INS) Charity Grant, plus a $375 matching contribution from F&B Communications, the local telecommunications provider in Calamus.

The grant funds will be used by the Fire Department to purchase new pagers for volunteer firemen.

“As citizens and business owners we are fortunate to have an active group of volunteers ready to serve in emergencies,” said Aaron Horman, F&B Communications marketing manager. “It is reassuring to know our volunteers are outfitted with updated communications equipment.”

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.

“INS was created to provide quality telecommunications in these communities,” said INS President Richard M. Vohs. “The Charity Grant Program is a way INS can help meet community needs.”

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.
