A Way to Say Thanks to Hoosier First Responders
On a daily basis, many of your fellow Hoosiers put your safety first. Members of the fire service, law enforcement, and emergency medical services from across Indiana make the well-being of their fellow citizens their top priority when called to respond to an incident with their expertise.
"Secure Indiana" License Plate
Now, there is a way you can show Hoosier first responders your support and gratitude for their commitment to their fellow citizens. The next time you renew your vehicle's plate, ask for a "Secure Indiana" license plate.
The revenue from "Secure Indiana" license plate sales funds the Indiana Homeland Security Foundation, formerly the Emergency Management, Fire and Building Services, and Public Safety Training Foundation. The Foundation, one of the first of its kind in the nation, offers financial support for critical public safety needs across Indiana.
The Foundation funds public safety projects at the local level. Local public safety organizations in your communities are eligible to apply for projects such as equipping emergency responders with personal protective equipment, acquiring equipment for use by emergency responders, and training for emergency responders. In 2006, The Foundation awarded over $400,000 in grant funds to communities throughout the state.
On October 1st 2013, Spencer County Emergency Ambulance Service received a grant from the Indiana Homeland Security Foundation that funded a First Responder education training program, providing 16 more Spencer County Fire Fighters with the training needed to become certified as First Responders and provide life-saving emergency medical responses to patients before arrival of Paramedics.
So, when you renew your vehicles license plate and purchase a "Secure Indiana" license plate, you are helping your local community.
