Monticello Fire Department members Tony Strenz (left) and Casey Klossner (right) accept a $700 grant from Scott Dilley, Alliant Energy. The grant will be used to purchase an AED to put on the Command Truck, which is the back-up First Response vehicle.

Emergency responders are neighbors and friends. Sometimes they're even volunteers. They provide medical care, fight fires and protect our communities because they care.

Hometown Safety Grants from the Alliant Energy Foundation are our way of showing support. These grants fund specific tools and projects to help first responders do their jobs even better. That includes defibrillators in public buildings, personal protective equipment for police and more. This fall, 13 communities across Wisconsin received grants, including the Monticello Fire Department, who received $700 for an AED (automatic external defibrillator). Hometown Safety Grants are awarded for specific, one-time safety-related projects that benefit a wide range of people. For more information or to apply, visit

The Alliant Energy Foundation is funded solely by Alliant Energy shareowners. 

The Alliant Energy Foundation is a philanthropic organization created by Alliant Energy Corporation and is operated as a separate entity led by its own board of directors. The Foundation is committed to making a positive difference in the communities where Alliant Energy employees, retirees and customers live and work. Since 1998, the Foundation has contributed more than $50 million to innovative projects and local nonprofits. For more information, visit
