Emergency Responder Funding Initiative

​We want to be your partner in community safety.


Emergency responders are committed to keeping the public safe. Alliance Pipeline wants to help with that commitment in the communities along our pipeline.

Alliance’s Emergency Responder Funding Initiative provides up to $5,000 in funding for equipment and other high-priority needs, once every three years, to emergency response organizations that serve the communities along the Alliance Pipeline. Is there any equipment your organization may need in the event of an emergency, that you don’t currently have? This program is designed to help you meet that need.

As part of Alliance’s commitment to safety, we endeavour to build strong relationships with first responders along our pipeline, so that we are prepared to work together in the unlikely event of a pipeline emergency. As such, priority will be given to response organizations that are open to establishing and maintaining a relationship with Alliance (e.g. participating with us in joint emergency response exercises).


  • Applicants must be an official emergency response organization (fire, police,  Emergency Medical Services).

  • Applicants must serve (or have a mutual aid agreement with) a community directly along the Alliance Pipeline System.

Funding Criteria

  • Funding is provided primarily for safety/emergency equipment.

    • Equipment must either serve to enhance safety and preparedness for the community at large, or for those who respond to an emergency.

  • Other (non-equipment) high-priority needs will be considered if a significant positive safety impact can be demonstrated. This may include training or other initiatives to enhance first responder capabilities.

  • Applications with the highest potential impact in terms of number of people benefitted, or mitigation of a frequent or serious safety risk, will be more likely to be successful.

  • Applicant must be willing to meet with Alliance Pipeline (at a mutually agreeable time), if requested.


Applying is easy! Just click the "Apply Today" button, fill out a brief application form, and you will hear back from Alliance within six weeks of submission.
