Safe Community

Safe Community

Small communities all across Canada and the U.S. rely on volunteer fire departments, minimally staffed police services, and other cash-strapped first responders to keep them safe. Money is perennially tight in rural municipalities with a small tax base, and equipment that could enhance the capabilities of the first responders is a luxury most of these communities can’t afford. Unfortunately, budgetary decisions such as these are made to the detriment of the communities, and add extra burdens and risks for first responders.

Recognizing that, Enbridge in 2002 launched its Safe Community program for towns along the company’s project corridor rights-of-way.

The Safe Community program awards grants to local first-response emergency services, including fire fighters and rescue services, Emergency Medical Services, ambulance, and police and sheriff's departments in rural communities across North America. Enbridge’s Safe Community program has existed in the U.S. since 2002, and in Canada since 2009, and has invested more than $5.7-million in North American emergency responder organizations since its inception.

“The money is intended to be used to purchase safety equipment, obtain professional training, or deliver educational programs to help save lives and keep Enbridge’s right-of-way communities safe,” says Lorna St. Thomas, Enbridge’s Manager of Community Partnerships.

“With operations and employees in communities across Canada and the United States, we believe it’s essential to be involved in those communities to help make them healthy, vibrant and, ultimately, better places to live. The safety of the communities in which we operate, and the people who live and work along our system, remain our highest priority. That’s why we’re proud to support the organizations that help to keep our communities safe.”

Nothing is more important than safety. Enbridge is proud to support the important contributions of police, firefighters, and other first responders who help keep communities safe.
