In response to the tragic wildfire near Yarnell, Arizona, INVISTA will make a cash donation to the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation to help support the families of the 19 firefighters who died while trying to contain the fire on June 30.
“Our hearts and prayers go out to the families affected by this tragedy,” said Bob Butler, vice president, INVISTA Performance Materials. “The fire department’s elite Granite Mountain Hotshots team gave the ultimate sacrifice, and they will not be forgotten.”
In addition, to help the Prescott Fire Department rebuild, INVISTA will provide the department with 20 sets of the company’s TECGEN XTREME® protective gear for wildland and technical rescue operations.
