Hemlock Semiconductor Operations is accepting applications from local fire departments seeking grants to cover the cost of a training or certification of the fire department’s choice.
The 2020 Fire Department Training Grants are available to fire departments in Saginaw, Bay, Midland and Gratiot counties, with applications due by Friday, Nov. 27. The grants are part of HSC’s commitment to supporting local emergency services in the Great Lakes Bay Region.
“At HSC, we value our first responders,” said Ryan Ludwick, HSC Safety and Emergency Services team leader. “This sponsorship is just a small token of our thanks for everything our community’s first responders and local fire departments do to keep our neighbors, employees and their families safe.”
Details on how to apply for the Fire Department Training Grant and the application form can be found at https://www.hscpoly.com/sustainability/giving-back-to-the-community/. Additional questions can be directed to Ludwick by calling HSC at 989-301-5000.
The Fire Department Training Grant is just one of many ways HSC supports local first responders, Ludwick said. HSC regularly invites local firefighters to its on-site fire training facility for training exercises and offers meeting space for first responders.
