WHEATLAND AMBULANCE RECEIVES FUNDING FOR RADIOS

WHEATLAND (IOWA) Wheatland Volunteer Ambulance Service is the recipient of a $250 Iowa Network Services (INS) Charity Grant, plus a $250 matching contribution from F&B Communications, the local telecommunications provider in Wheatland.

The grant funds will be used by the ambulance service to purchase an additional two-way radio.

“We often take for granted the convenience of having our own ambulance service right here in Wheatland,” said Ken Laursen, F&B Communications general manager. “We are proud to support our local volunteers.”

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.
