Minnesota Energy Resources offering grants to assist first responders in meeting safety needs

Keeping local communities safe is a responsibility Minnesota Energy Resources takes seriously. To show support for those who also work to uphold public safety, Minnesota Energy Resources and its charitable giving organization, the Wisconsin Public Service (WPS) Foundation, are encouraging emergency response agencies in the utility's service area to apply for the"Safety-It's Worth the Energy" grant this spring. Grant applications are being accepted now through June 30.

Last year, Minnesota Energy Resources and the WPS Foundation awarded $12,500 total to nine emergency response agencies in the utility's service area through the grant, which helps organizations provide professional training or equipment for their staff.

In order to be eligible to receive the grant, emergency response agencies must operate within the Minnesota Energy Resources service area and demonstrate the equipment or training they wish to acquire is part of a well-detailed effort to improve public safety. Organizations may also apply for funding for upcoming projects, but they must be safety-focused efforts that are unique in nature.

Emergency response agencies interested in the "Safety-It's Worth the Energy" grant can apply online. More detailed information on the grant and the application guidelines can be found on the Minnesota Energy Resources website at www.minnes otaenergyresources.com/business/worth_energy_grant.aspx.
