The Christina E. Brugman Grant funds projects benefitting the City of Kirkland emergency preparedness efforts. Applicants must show how their projects support the Greater Kirkland Citizen Corps Council’s mission “to create a resilient community by helping to coordinate the preparedness efforts of local leaders, community groups, citizen volunteers and the Kirkland Office of Emergency Management in responding to disasters of all kinds by harnessing the power of involved citizens.”

Previous funding was awarded to EvergreenHealth to support the Stop the Bleed Class, for the purchase of flagging and traffic control equipment to be used by trained volunteers during emergencies and to Norkirk neighbors for emergency supplies for their disaster preparedness efforts.
Funding for the grants comes from donations raised by the Greater Kirkland Citizen Corps Council with matching funds from companies such as Microsoft, Boeing and Google.
This grant is named in honor of Christina Brugman in appreciation for her untiring devotion to promoting emergency preparedness in the City of Kirkland.
