The city of Mound was awarded a grant so the Mound Fire Department can buy multi-gas monitors and calibration cylinder gas.

MOUND — CenterPoint Energy’s Community Partnership Grant Program recently awarded the city of Mound $2,200 so the Mound Fire Department can purchase multi-gas monitors and calibration cylinder gas.

“At CenterPoint Energy, our top priority is to encourage safety awareness and safe practices in our communities,” Senior Director of Community Relations for Center Point Energy Diane Englet said in a news release. “We are pleased that through our matching grant program, we are able to help cities leverage local resources to purchase needed safety equipment, training or provide financial support for important safety-related projects.”

Multi-gas monitors can detect flammable gas, oxygen depletion and other toxic gases. Calibration gas is used as a comparative standard in gas detectors such as multi-gas monitors.

The Community Partnership Grant Program has awarded more than $1.8 million since 2003 to fund 967 projects, the release says.
