Regional District of Bulkley Nechako (RDBN) chair Lance Hamblin accepted a $3,788 cheque from Nechako Kitimaat Development Fund Society (NKDF) towards a pager system for the  Southside Volunteer Fire Department.

The project consists of upgrading the Mount Verdun repeater tower, clearing the site near Danskin, installing a repeater tower at the site, constructing a storage building, installing solar power at the site and purchasing 12 pagers for the Southside Volunteer Fire Department.

The Danskin tower will boost the reception and pager coverage and link the pager service to the 911 service.
