As an industry-leading supplier of personal protective equipment, Saf-T-Gard International, Inc. recently donated several thousand dollars’ worth in safety products to the Good360 charitable organization to assist in the California wildfire disaster recovery -- namely, the California Carr Fire. As the ninth most dangerous fire in history, the California Carr Fire burned 229,651 acres, destroyed more than 1,000 homes and cost more than $1.658 billion in damages. Although full containment has been achieved, fire suppression repair remains ongoing, as does the need for on-the-ground recovery worker safety.
“No one understands the importance of safety in the aftermath of a natural disaster more than Saf-T-Gard, and we were honored to contribute,” said Richard Rivkin, President and CEO, Saf-T-Gard International, Inc. “Saf-T-Gard has been bringing workers home safely for more than 80 years, and we extend this commitment to our non-profit partners as well during all stages of their disaster recovery process. We recognize the great impact of all the California fires, and we continue to keep everyone affected in our thoughts and prayers.”
