Hayward Fire Department receives Enbridge Safe Community Grant

Michelle Johnson, a community relations specialist for Enbridge Energy, delivers a $6,100 check from the company’s Safe Community Grant Program to the Hayward Fire Department. The city of Ashland recently rejected up to $65,000 in grants for police and fire department gear.

Ashland City Council member Charlie Ortman said he was suspicious of Enbridge Energy’s motives when it offered the city grants of up to $65,000 to purchase equipment for the police and fire departments and for other expenses.
