Wall Ambulance Service Fundraiser
The Wall Economic Development Corporation is WEDC is continuing to fundraise for the Wall Ambulance Service. We started a friendly challenge by publicly asking local businesses to donate, then continue the chain by challenging another local business to donate as well. We have raised a total of $5,530 through the GoFundMe page and others have donated directly to the Wall Ambulance Fund set up at First Interstate Bank. We encourage you to donate to ensure our Ambulance Service can continue to be fully operational!

Phase 1 of the Industrial Park has been completed and is ready for business! Lots in Phase 1 have access to electricity, water, sewer, and fiber optic.

This, combined with natural resources and space availability, make it an ideal location for small agricultural value-added businesses, precision ag companies and high-tech manufacturing.
