OK~~~~Now for some really exciting news! After a 3 year span a District can go BACK and ask again for funds for Disaster Preparedness from LCIF!  I went to work right away writing another grant to enhance our Alert Trailer, adding an additional generator, chainsaw, more tables and chairs, vests, blankets and even a storage building for supplies and lighting and so much more.  
We just received word from LCIF that we were granted the full amount requested which was $9,000.00!  We will be receiving those funds soon and will go to work building our Alert plans even further. The funds are on the way, so watch for these great enhancements from the LCIF Grant!  We are READY to add to M6 ALERT Program!!
