When Budget Cuts are a Must, Video Conferencing Helps put out the Fire


LOS ANGELES, CA, March 3, 2010 – Budget cuts. Over the last year those two little words have become an essential part of doing business. Many state municipalities have been driven to enforce budget cuts; The Noblesville Fire Department being one of them.
