TPT | NOW Channel 2.5 Partnership

The Minnesota Department of Public Safety and Twin Cities Public Television (TPT) are partnering to feature public safety and health information on a seasonal, situational and emergency basis.

We work collaboratively to provide round-the-clock education and information to Minnesota's diverse communities. This includes translating our public education and outreach materials into three different languages (Hmong, Somali and Spanish) for broadcast on  TPT | Now Channel 2.5 as well as use on agency websites and social media accounts.

The goal is to ensure all Minnesotans are safe and in-the-know should a disaster or emergency take place. The following materials have been translated and can be downloaded for your use.
