Recently, Pendleton Fire Chief Mike Ciraulo wrote the following on Facebook-
“I just wanted to let you know that the Thermal Imaging Cameras that the Wildhorse Foundation granted us earlier this year were a saving grace in our Christmas day fire on Main Street. Not only did they save thousands of dollars in damage to the structure (they allowed us to limit tearing open walls and limited water damage) but helped us avoid a possible disaster. It allowed our Firefighters to see the flashover conditions as they were developing and allow the Firefighters to safely retreat before they were burned or killed. Thank you SO much!”
We could not be more happy that we are able to help those that serve and protect our communities! Thank you to the Public Safety personnel who keep us all safe throughout the year!
The Umatilla County Special Library District recently announced KEVA Planks are now available at all 12 public libraries in Umatilla County. The Libraries of Eastern Oregon purchased the planks with grant funds provided by the Wildhorse Foundation and the Community Outreach Committee of Cayuse Technologies. Click here for full story!
The Wildhorse Foundation helped to make a 3D Printing and CAD course possible and helped students discover and use the technology of the future. The students—and teachers—have grown tremendously from the project. The amount of college credits earned by these students alone is amazing, but knowing that this course will be available for years to come is even better. The students will begin producing prosthetic devices in the spring. Watch the video here.
Hermiston Fire & Emergency Services received $18,165 from the Wildhorse Foundation which is earmarked for purchasing mobile reporting hardware to be placed in each ambulance. Click here for the complete story.
