Testimonials

The Washington Co Digital Navigator Project has been a game-changer for the emergency services in Cokeburg borough, specifically for the Cokeburg Volunteer Fire Department. With access to critical devices and comprehensive digital skills training, the project has helped us significantly improved our life-saving emergency services and enhanced our response capabilities to fire protection and other critical situations. The project’s support has bridged the gap between our aspirations and financial constraints, enabling us to better serve our community with faster and more efficient responses.

We are immensely grateful for their support and excited about the positive impact it will have on our department’s operations and the safety of our residents.
