Alliance Pipeline has welcomed its new Community Safety and Emergency Responder Funding initiatives, which are designed to provide funds and promote greater safety in the communities along its pipeline system. These two new community investment programmes support community organisations and first responders in obtaining critical safety equipment, training and resources.
The Alliance Pipeline system consists of an approximately 3848 km (2391 mile) of integrated Canadian and US natural gas transmission pipeline system, delivering rich natural gas from the western Canadian Sedimentary Basin and the Williston Basin to the Chicago market hub.
Reflecting the company's focus on safety, the Alliance Community Safety initiative provides grants of up to CAN$5000 to non-profit organisations in communities along the Alliance system for safety related initiatives. Alliance wants applicants to get creative with how the company can help make the community safer.
The second new component, the Emergency Responder Funding initiative, provides up to CAN$5000 per organisation every three years toward equipment and other high priority needs for emergency responders serving communities along the Alliance pipeline system. This initiative is designed to help emergency responder organisations obtain the safety equipment they need but do not have the resources for.
"We've chosen to focus our charitable efforts in a way that reinforces our commitment to safety," said Terrance Kutryk, Alliance's President and CEO. "This reflects Alliance's commitment to safe operations, local community safety and the safety of those living and working near our pipeline. We believe we can have a greater local impact by concentrating this funding on one important cause – safety."
