Installed and ready to communicate

  Oracle Fire District added something shiny and new to its fire station on American Avenue.

  No. It’s not a new truck.

  A brand new reader board was installed last week and according to Fire Chief Robert Jennings, it’s “absolutely perfect!”

  Jennings told the Miner: “As many of you know, our old board was over a dozen years old and had finally given up, so we put out a request for donations to replace it, knowing that it is not only an essential communications tool for emergency situations, but it also serves the vital purpose of keeping our residents and visitors informed of events happening in the community. Oracle responded to our appeal for funds in your typically generous fashion. Within two months we had enough money to order the new board. It is much higher quality than the old board and works with modern technology. This gives us the ability to change the messages remotely, which will be key in emergency situations.”

  “We are very proud to serve such a giving and caring community as Oracle,” Jennings added.

  Please drive by to admire this beautiful sight!
