Public safety efforts in 13 communities receive over $12,000
MADISON, Wis. – November 1, 2018 – Emergency responders are neighbors and friends. Sometimes they’re even volunteers. They provide medical care, fight fires and protect our communities because they care.
Hometown Safety Grants from the Alliant Energy Foundation are our way of showing support. These grants fund specific tools and projects to help first responders do their jobs even better. That includes defibrillators in public buildings, personal protective equipment for police and more.
