scholarships to promote safety
One of our core values at APS is safety.
It sets the tone and culture for our nearly 6,400 employees and the communities
where we live and work.
This is why, since 2014, we’ve provided
$100,000 worth of scholarships for 400 rural firefighters to attend the Arizona
State Fire School (ASFS). The scholarship represents approximately 85–90% of
the total costs to attend.
ASFS works with Arizona State Fire
Training Committee (ASFTC) by offering high-quality training. With more than 30
life-safety classes, rural firefighters learn things from vehicle extraction
techniques—to how to provide emergency response while on a tight budget.
Randy Redmond, Foundation Manager of ASFTC,
said, “Our goal is to find a way to provide life-safety education to all of the
Arizona rural firefighters.”
Alongside our support for ASFS, we
donated approximately $400,000 to other first responder causes in 2016.
We would like to thank all of our first responders
for their commitment to protecting our employees, customers and communities
