There's  one month to go for area emergency responders to get grant money from Wisconsin Public Service.
Wisconsin Public Service's Foundation is celebrating 50 years with a special effort...says spokesperson Leah Van Zile...

"....August 1st is the deadline for emergency responders to apply for our new safety grant. We'll be awarding 25 grants(in the service area) of $2,000 to area responders in the public service area...."

The total grant amount totals $50,000 for the WPS service area...

"....the application is very simple. They go online to wisconsinpublicservice.com   
scroll down to where it says 'first responders' and get linked to where the grant is. There are some things that would be considered, some that would not. The application is right on line..."

Van Zile says grants may be used to purchase equipment and professional development. Projects must be special, one-time safety-related efforts.
