Honeywell donates protective fire equipment to Massac

Staff report

For the fourth year in a row, Honeywell's Metropolis Works facility is donating more than $2,500 worth of firefighting gear to the Massac County Volunteer Fire Department as part of the company's corporate citizenship program.

The equipment will include three full sets of firefighter coats and pants from Honeywell's First Responder Products, which manufactures advanced personal protective equipment for firefighters.

Since 2011, the facility has donated $13,000 worth of equipment to Massac County first responders.

Fire Chief Mike Childers said the support is appreciated since the volunteer department operates with limited funds.

"This equipment will help us protect our volunteers as they protect the community," Childers said.

According to Jim Pritchett, Metropolis Works facility manager, Honeywell enjoys a strong relationship with the fire department as the plant's emergency response teams frequently participate with local police, fire, rescue and other emergency services in drills to improve emergency planning.

Since 2010, the Metropolis Works facility has donated more than $200,000 to local communities in a variety of ways, including assisting with hazardous waste cleanup following the Brookport tornado, providing emergency sirens in Metropolis, Joppa and Brookport, and electronic fire/emergency pre-planning software systems and computers to the Massac County and Metropolis fire departments.
