Kaw Gaming Incorporated donates over $11,000 to Kaw City Fire Department

Ponca City Now - January 21, 2019 2:49 pm

NEWKIRK —  Kaw Gaming Incorporated will present a check for $11,065 to the Kaw City Fire Department on Tuesday at the Kaw SouthWind Casino Newkirk.

The donation will be used to help purchase five full bunker sets, a safety concern of the Kaw City Fire Department.

Fire Chief Steven Long said “Bunkers or personal protective equipment are what you picture when you see a firefighter in their full gear. Safety guidelines are to replace the bunker sets every 10 years, but due to financial constraints, we are using units that were between 15 and 20 years old.”

Kaw Gaming Incorporated President Gena Warren said “It is our responsibility to ensure the health, safety and wellbeing of our Kaw citizens and community. We have Kaw citizens living in the Kaw City area and tribal headquarters which includes our Kanza Museum that preserves artifacts that are irreplaceable.”

We feel it is important to support our local fire department,” Warren said.
