What's On Tap
Cal Water is constantly working to provide reliable, high-quality water service to our customers and support for our communities. Here are some highlights.
Cal Water Awards Nearly $175,000 in 2021 Firefighter Grant Program
Since 2019, Cal Water has provided $482,500 to 25 departments in its service area. As part of its commitment to supporting fire departments in its service areas, Cal Water recently announced the recipients of its third annual Firefighter Grant Program. Eight fire departments were awarded a total of $174,500 to purchase or fund equipment that will help protect life and property.
The 2021 grant recipients were selected based on need for items to protect first responders or the communities in which Cal Water serves. The recipients include: Chico Fire Department, Dixon Fire Department, Kern County Fire Department, Los Angeles County Fire Department, Oroville Fire Department, Selma Fire Department, South San Francisco Fire Department and Willows Fire Department.
“Our partnership with the firefighters in our service areas extends beyond providing the water they need to protect our communities; as they put their lives on the line for us, we want to support them as best we can,” said Martin A. Kropelnicki, President and CEO. “With many fire departments stretched for resources, we are glad that our Firefighter Grant Program can help them obtain the equipment they need to be safe and protect others, especially as we have seen the frequency and severity of fires grow year after year due to climate change.”
