Hardin County Amateur Radio Emergency Services received a $2,000 grant from the Bluegrass Pipeline project on March 26, to assist in the purchase of emergency communication equipment.
Hardin County Amateur Radio Emergency Services wants to place five portable kits of emergency communication equipment in strategically located areas in the community to assist area hospitals, fire departments, law enforcement and emergency operation centers if regular forms of communication are not in service. The funding to the Amateur Radio Emergency Services of Hardin County is part of a community grant program that’s available for counties that host the Bluegrass Pipeline.
“We are providing the opportunity for area first responders to enhance access to communication resources in all circumstances and are truly grateful to the Bluegrass Pipeline for providing support for this project,” Woodrow “Woody” Will from Amateur Radio Emergency Services of Hardin County said. “This generosity will give our community the communication resources necessary for our first responders”
The grant program is designed to emphasize the company’s social responsibility on issues such as safety, environmental stewardship and community benefits. To that end, grants are awarded for a variety of projects including new equipment for first responders, wildlife habitat enhancement, conservation education, historic preservation and economic and community development.
Amateur Radio Emergency Services of Hardin County is one of 21 community organizations in Kentucky that will benefit from the Bluegrass Pipeline’s Community Grant Program in grant awards.
