Harmer Communications donated 11 of the advanced radios to the Red Cross, which will allow disaster response communication throughout the county and the state when phone and other communication services are unavailable.

Harmer said the opportunity to share aligned with his company’s commitment to giving. “This was a neat opportunity,” he said.
