The Harley-Davidson Motor Company recently donated 6,359 pounds of safety equipment from the plant’s emergency response team to the York County Advanced Technical Rescue (YCATR) team and the York County Fire School. The donation was a partnership to repurpose instead of disposing the materials for scrap or waste. The items will be used by the YCATR and the Fire School for training purposes. Some of the items include an emergency transport vehicle with gurneys and evacuation chair, confined space retrieval system and gear, fire hoses, spill response and decontamination gear and supplies, multi-drawer tool chest, fire safety equipment, plus various tools and hardware.
The safety items were presented to (from left to right) John Sanford, of the YCATR, and Richard Halpin, of the York County Fire School, by Harley-Davidson’s Safety Manager Amy Stout and Environmental Manager Sharon Fisher.
