The company donated nine MMR Firehawk air packs and five air tanks that will be used by the students taking safety courses offered through the Workforce Training/Continuing Education department. The equipment allows workers to enter safely into confined spaces with potentially hazardous air. The equipment is valued at approximately $25,000.
“This kind of donation is such a big help to our students and instructors, so we’re very grateful to Action Health and Safety,” said Howard Mayer, dean of Access, Business and International programs for the college, in a statement.
