The Association of Washington Business Tuesday recognized two Spokane companies for community Service.
Inland Northwest Health Services received the education award for companies with more than 100 employees.
Inland created EMS Lite @ Nite, an interactive video-conferencing program that enables volunteer rural emergency medical service providers to get and maintain their certification without having to leave work, or their communities.
The system reaches 108 rural locations, and serves an average 208 participants each trainiing session.
The volunteerism award for companies with fewer than 25 employees went to Craig Dias, general manager of Haskings Steel Co. Inc.
Among the boards Dias serves on are the Rotary Club 21's youth services committee and the advisory council for the Inland Northwest Lighthouse for the Blind's fund-raising committee.
