The McKenzie County and Dunn County Emergency Management agencies were presented with $20,000 donations from representatives of Dakota Access Pipeline, LLC (DAPL) on Thursday, Oct. 24. DAPL also donated similar amounts to the other five counties in North Dakota through which the pipeline travels.
The Dakota Access Pipeline is committed to being a good neighbor, a good business partner and a valued member of North Dakota’s communities, stated the company in a prepared news release. DAPL will make similar donations to county emergency management agencies across its four-state route, totaling $1 million across 50 counties in North Dakota, South Dakota, Iowa and Illinois.
“We are so appreciative of the ongoing generosity from oil and gas companies in our community,” said Karolin Jappe, McKenzie County Emergency Management coordinator. “Dakota Access Pipeline has been great to work with and is a top-notch company in the industry. With donations like these we are able to really look at the specific needs, both big and small, for our first response departments.”
