CUSEC is pleased to announce that it has recently received a “Public Safety Grant” from the Motorola Solutions Foundation (MSF), the charitable arm of Motorola Solutions, Inc. Through the grant, CUSEC will continue to educate the general public around the central U.S. region about earthquake preparedness through events such as the Great Central U.S. ShakeOut; as well as provide new tools, such as Geographic Information Systems (GIS), and continued training for emergency managers and responders.
The Public Safety Grant program supports organizations that provide training to first responders, supports the families of fallen first responders, or educates the general public on safety issues. “As a small non-profit organization, we are heavily dependent on grants and outside contributions to help CUSEC carry out its mission,” said Jim Wilkinson, CUSEC Executive Director. “I’m thrilled to have received the grant from the Motorola Solutions Foundation; these funds will go a long way to helping us leverage our limited resources as we work throughout our communities,” he added.
