Carlsbad company gives back to firefighters

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) – A Carlsbad-based company reached out to the city's fire department Monday to thank them for their work battling the Poinsettia Fire.

Viasat's campus is on El Camino Real, very close to where the fire burned last May. The communication company joined together with its employees to donate gift cards and electronics to the fire department, including several Apple TVs that will be used for training.

"Not every one of our stations has a power point projector. It's a great opportunity for them to use new technology within the station," Carlsbad Fire Chief Mike Davis said.

Viasat employees also made thank you cards and banners for the firefighters.
