Safe Community First Responder Program

Small communities across Canada and the U.S. rely on fire departments, ambulance services, and other emergency responders to keep them safe. Money is perennially tight, especially in rural municipalities with a small tax base, and equipment that could enhance the capabilities of these first responders is a luxury for some communities.

The Safe Community First Responder Program awards grants for safety equipment, professional training, or safety education programs to emergency response organizations, including fire departments, emergency medical and rescue services, emergency management organizations, 9-1-1 centers, ambulance services and law enforcement organizations.

Organizations must serve (or have a mutual aid agreement with) a community directly along the Alliance Pipeline system to be eligible for funding.

Organizations that closely meet eligibility criteria, have a high potential impact on community safety and have a direct partnership with Alliance Pipeline may also be invited to apply for funding. Organizations that are invited by Alliance Pipeline to apply for a Safe Community First Responder grant should use the link provided in the email invitation.
