CenterPoint Energy recently awarded the city of Braham a Community Partnership Grant in the amount of $1,000 for replacement breathing apparatus cylinders for the fire department that will be used to serve the community.
“We are pleased that our Community Partnership Grants will help cities in our service area leverage local funding to obtain additional tools and safety equipment, enabling them to better serve their community,” said Tal Centers, division vice president of regional operations for CenterPoint Energy. “This program allows us to work closely with the cities we serve to help make our communities better and safer places to live and work.”
In 2011, the program awarded grants up to $2,500 for safety equipment or safety related projects to support emergency response or safety for the citizens of the community. Priority is given to franchised communities that have not received a grant in the last year.
