The Wisconsin Public Service (WPS) Foundation is supporting first responders who keep their communities safe every day.

The foundation is providing a total of $50,000 through its Rewarding Responders Grant to 27 emergency response agencies throughout its service area.

Among this year’s grant recipients is the Chilton Fire Department which is receiving funding for pairs of structural firefighting boots for firefighters.

The WPS Foundation has donated more than $350,000 in Rewarding Responders Grants to 200 agencies since 2014. These grants help to strengthen public safety in the communities WPS serves.

To be eligible for the grant, emergency response agencies must operate in the WPS electric or natural gas service area.
