Fire Department Receives Community Grant March 07, 2018

On Friday, March 2, the Coos Bay Fire Department was one of 56 organizations receiving grant awards from the Coquille Tribal Community Fund. The $5,000 grant will be used to help purchase a Thermal Imaging Camera (TIC), a tool that measures heat and creates an image on a screen using infrared radiation.  This tool will help emergency responders to identify hot spots, find victims, and locate hidden fires and void spaces. 

The Coquille Indian Tribe established its Community Fund to share the proceeds of The Mill Casino/Hotel with organizations that benefit the residents of southwestern Oregon.
