WWCFD8 receives $50,000 award


DIXIE—Northwest Farm Credit Services has awarded $50,000 to Walla Walla County Fire District 8 located in Dixie, Wash.

Northwest Farm Credit Services donates funds to non-profits through its Rural Community Grant Program. The program supports projects that improve a rural community’s infrastructure, viability, and economic health. They strive to improve the lives of their customers and employees, the communities where they live and work, and the northwest agriculture, food, and fiber industries.

Walla Walla County Fire District 8 specified the need for a side-by-side 4x4 ATV emergency medical/ fire response vehicle. This vehicle will be equipped with snow tracks for winter access and wildland firefighting equipment to access areas that regular emergency vehicles cannot. The award will also fund some personal protective equipment (PPE) for volunteer firefighters.

WWCFD8 would like to thank Lori Stonecipher and Stonecipher Farms for their assistance and support of this award. Fire District #8 is a small rural fire district that serves the center of Walla Walla County.
