The Aberdeen Fire Department has new radios, thanks to a generous donation from the Sierra Pacific Foundation. Fire Chief Tom Hubbard with the Aberdeen Fire Department announced on Wednesday that the Sierra Pacific Foundation provided grant funds to the fire department in the amount of $6,551 dollars for the purchase of portable radios.

Hubbard said “the radios are critical equipment for the safety of our firefighters and key to the provision of emergency fire and medical operations.”

The Aberdeen Fire Department deeply values and appreciates the ongoing support we have received from the Sierra Pacific Foundation, specifically Carolyn Emmerson Dietz, President, and Lisa Perry, Community Relations Manager for Sierra Pacific Industries.
