February 23, 2007

HARPERS FERRY, W.Va. - The Friendship Fire Co. in Harpers Ferry has been awarded $64,049 to purchase new portable radios, U.S. Rep. Shelley Moore Capito announced Thursday.

The radios work with an emerging communication system in the state called the Interoperable Radio Project and Capito, R-W.Va., has been working with county officials to find funds to finance the $2 million project.

"This is very important to the town of Harpers Ferry because we have several communication dead spots and these funds will correct this potentially life-threatening situation," said Mayor Jim Addy.
