Today, Thursday, Sept. 17, 2020, the Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes and Lucky Star Casino began donating the eClear thermal cameras to public schools in the Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes tribal jurisdiction.
The casino’s annual fundraising promotion successfully raised funds to donate thermal cameras to the El Reno, Kingfisher, Calumet, Geary, Watonga, Canton, Seiling, Woodward, Clinton, Weatherford, Arapaho, Thomas, Cordell, Elk City, Hammon and Darlington Public Schools.
“It is an honor the Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes are able to donate these thermal cameras where all children will benefit,” Gov. Wassana said. “We thank El Reno Public Schools and other school districts for their continued positive partnerships.”
A total of 40 thermal cameras will be donated to these schools. The first donation was 7 cameras to the El Reno Public Schools. The thermal camera is a non-contact device that detects infrared energy (heat) to take temperatures of children as they enter the school facilities.
Gov. Wassana and Lt. Gov. Miles hope the thermal cameras will assist keeping all our children safe in our communities. Hohóú/Né-á'eše! #infrared#washingtondc#schoolsafety#oklahoma#eclear#luckystarcasino#indiangaming#casinogaming#NCIT#thermal#covid19#NIGA
