Bruce County’s Alternate Emergency Operations Centre enhanced by new Provincial and Federal Funding
Bruce County is pleased to announce that the federal and provincial governments have teamed up to fund a new generator for the County’s Alternate Emergency Operations Centre, which is located at the Bruce County Museum & Cultural Centre in Southampton. As part of infrastructure support for communities across Ontario, Bruce County is receiving $44,392 in provincial funding and $177,568 in federal funding for a total of $221,960 for this much needed generator.
The generator will ensure a functional alternate facility for Emergency Management staff should the County’s main Emergency Operations Centre be rendered inoperable. The generator will also provide a safe and stable climate-controlled environment for vital and irreplaceable archival materials at the Museum in the event of a power outage.
Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound MPP Bill Walker recently highlighted this funding for Bruce County, as part of an announcement that our local municipalities will receive a total of $1,913,042 in federal and provincial infrastructure funds ($382,608.40 provincial investment, $1,530,433.60 federal investment). This funding is intended to help protect the health of residents, create jobs, and promote economic recovery.
“This is fantastic news for Bruce County and communities across our region,” said Bruce County Warden Janice Jackson, “This support helps Bruce County safeguard the community and our valuable historical assets. Thank you to our federal and provincial partners for providing this important infrastructure funding.”
