Community Grants – A New Way to Purchase the HazSim
One of the most frequent questions we get at HazSim is, “Can You Help Us With Grants?” The HazSim Hazardous Materials Simulation Training System is often purchased with grant money. While HazMat professionals are very aware of federal funding, they often forget the more obvious, and underutilized Corporate Community Grants.
HazSim’s Corporate Sales department points out, “Corporate Giving Partners are those utility companies, major corporations, industrial or manufacturing facilities that you serve in your community. Usually they have an established Foundation or Non Profit set up for grant requests, but I’ve found that most fire agency HazMat departments aren’t aware of them or haven’t applied.”
These overlooked funding opportunities are important, and HazSim is happy to work as a bridge-builder between your agency, and the “check writers” in your community. “It’s a great thing to be able to make a connection between a major utility, industrial or corporate company to an agency that serves them. They don’t get phone calls like mine often and my requests are usually well received.”
