The equipment donated includes self-contained breathing apparatuses and masks, ventilation fans, a backboard with head blocks and straps, first-aid supplies, fire extinguishers, neck collars, 100-foot and 50-foot rescue ropes, helmets, personal fall arrest system harnesses, lanyards and carabiners.
EQT’s Vice President of Environment, Health and Safety Michael Lauderbaugh said, “EQT has a significant operational presence in Washington County, including the North Strabane area. We also have many employees and contractors who live in the area, and we are very pleased to be able to provide this equipment to the fire department. Our commitment to safety goes beyond our sites and office locations. Plus, we never take for granted the services that all-first responders provide to the community.”
North Strabane Fire Chief Mark Grimm added, “We appreciate the generous donation from EQT. While we hope to never need it, having the right tools at the ready in the event of an emergency or disaster can make all the difference in saving lives. We’re very grateful to EQT for their support.”
