Public safety gets a boost from the Alliant Energy Foundation

Public safety efforts in 24 communities received $24,700 from the Alliant Energy Foundation.


A group of preschool students toured the Mount Pleasant Volunteer Fire Department and met Sparky, an animatronic mascot that teaches kids about fire safety. Jeff Beavers, far right, is an Alliant Energy gas mechanic, and a 40-year veteran and assistant chief of the fire department.

The Foundation provides Hometown Safety Grants to assist communities in protecting public health and safety. The grants help defray the costs of life-saving and other protective equipment.

Examples include defibrillators in public buildings; community emergency alert systems or personal protective equipment for public safety personnel.
