APS Fund provides grants to first responders

First responder agencies in Arizona now have the opportunity to apply for grants through a new APS Fund within the Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation. The fund, seeded with $50,000 from APS, is available to agencies within APS’s service territory throughout the state and provides the opportunity to procure much needed life-saving equipment.

“We have always been supportive of our first responders and we value the lifesaving work they do every day,” said Tina Marie Tentori, Executive Director of APS Corporate Giving. “We are excited to partner with Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation to help ensure our first responders have the latest technology and equipment to save even more lives.”

Interested agencies can apply for funding from the APS Fund starting on July 1, 2014 through September 5, 2014. Grant applications can be completed via FirehouseSubs.com/Foundation. Applicants will be notified of their status after Sept 17, 2014.

“Since 2005, we have awarded more than $237,000 in grants to Arizona based first responders and we are thrilled that APS made this investment in their community to expand our reach even further,” said Robin Peters, Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation Executive Director.
