Dakota Access Pipeline Donates To County Emergency Services
October 18, 2019 5:50pm
The Dakota Access Pipeline is donating $20,000 to each Emergency Management Agency across Iowa in the counties through which the pipeline travels, totaling $360,000.
With the aim of helping first responders, each county is encouraged to use the funds where they need it most. A check presentation was held Thursday afternoon at the Buena Vista County Emergency Operations Center.
Dakota Access will make similar donations to county emergency management agencies across its four-state route, totaling $1 million across 50 counties in North Dakota, South Dakota, Iowa and Illinois.
EMA Coordinators for Sioux, Lyon, and O’Brien Counties all say they’re grateful for the donation and will use the money to purchase new equipment for their respective first responders.
The Dakota Access Pipeline traverses approximately 101 miles through Lyon, Sioux, O’Brien, Cherokee, Buena Vista and Sac counties in Iowa. The company will also be donating to the Iowa 4-H Foundation and the Iowa FFA Foundation. It had made a similar donation of $1 million to county EMAs after the pipeline began service in 2017.
