Public Service:

I wish to express to everyone our thanks for all the help on the Bluffton Fire District Radio Test on May 19th.  As Sun City is a large community that relies on the BTFD, it’s wonderful to be able to give back. We are fortunate to have a forward-thinking protection agency. Your participation in the communications test helped make it successful. Without your participation the testing would have been longer and more difficult. Again thank you all. We hope for your continued participation in future. 

-Dan, K4DNY – Public Service Coordinator
