Computer Zen donates copier to firefightersThe Challis Fire Department received a new Xerox ColorCube copier from Computer Zen in Salmon.
Computer Zen owner Steve Dahl said the multifunction printer and copier prints with wax, not ink or toner, which results in waterproof text and images on the documents. That means firefighters can take maps or whatever they’ve printed with them to fires and not worry about water making the ink or toner run so the documents aren’t legible.
The printer is eco-friendly, Dahl said, because it consumes the entire wax cube. There are no empty cartridges to toss.
When the Dahl family learned that the fire department needed a copier, “we happened to have a machine we thought they could use, so we decided to donate it,” he said.
Dahl, his wife Pattie, and their son Nathan, own and operate the technology store in downtown Salmon.
