Ballyclare Limited has come to the aid of a major firefighting organisation with a donation of equipment that will help improve the training the organisation provides.
Ballyclare provided the equipment to the UK-based Global Fire & Rescue Partnerships, which works to improve safety for emergency services personnel overseas.
“For some foreign firefighting forces, the equipment and training at their disposal may be outdated or inefficient. We work to improve conditions for their firefighters and make their work safer and more effective,” comments Chris Kendall from Global Fire & Rescue Partnerships.
“We are an entirely voluntary organisation, so we were delighted when Ballyclare said they wanted to help us. They kindly provided us with a variety of new firefighting kit, and we’ll use it either for training purposes, or pass it on to firefighting services abroad who will be able to make excellent use of it.”
“We were delighted to be able to help,” adds Ballyclare managing director, Carlton Greener. “The UK Fire and Rescue community is one of our main customer groups for the various ranges of protective workwear we supply, and anything we can do help improve conditions for their colleagues abroad is worthwhile.”
