The Bayonne Energy Center has donated high elevation rescue equipment to the Bayonne Fire Department, Bayonne city officials announced.
The equipment donated to the Bayonne Fire Department helps strengthen the existing arsenal of rescue tools used by firefighters, and is geared toward technical operations involving rescue at elevation and rescue in confined spaces, city spokesman Joe Ryan said.
“On behalf of the people of Bayonne, I would like to thank the Bayonne Energy Center for its generosity to the Fire Department,” Bayonne Mayor Jimmy Davis said in a statement. “The company’s donation of equipment will improve our first responders’ ability to rescue industrial workers and residents during emergencies.”
Fire Chief Gregory Rogers also had words of gratitude for the donation.
“I extend my appreciation to the members of Bayonne Energy Center for their generosity, and for helping make our firefighters more effective and safer in their operations,” he said in a statement.
“Over the years, we have been the very fortunate recipients of equipment donations from a number of industry partners in the immediate area, including IMTT Bayonne,” Rogers added. “The cumulative effect of these donations serves to protect neighboring industries, construction workers, and our citizens as well.”
