Plessey donates spare firefighting equipment to IFRA
Plessey Semiconductors was thrilled to donate emergency firefighting equipment to the International Fire and Rescue Association (IFRA), who will redistribute the kit to emergency services around the world.
When replacing some of our emergency response team’s equipment, we had spares that were still in great condition. Rather than throw them away, we were directed to IFRA. The association collects equipment that could be used by emergency services throughout the world who cannot provide adequate services themselves. To date, IFRA have sent 107 vehicles, 77 containers, and delivered 72 training missions to 24 countries in total. Donations large or small go a long way to helping provide these important services in the safest way possible.
The equipment includes self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) sets, emergency life support apparatus (ELSA) cylinders, masks, and filters. These have been sent to IFRA, who will be able to send them to a place most in need of these specific items. We are excited to find out where the equipment gets its second life!
