Honeywell Donates $2 Million in PPE Following Harvey

"Under these extraordinary circumstances, we want to help volunteers, employees, and our customers to be as safe as possible," added John Waldron, president of Honeywell Safety and Productivity Solutions. "We are proud of the great work being done by first responders and so many others, and we are thankful for the ability to help those on the front lines who provide help where it is needed the most."

Honeywell announced Sept. 5 that it has donated about $2 million in personal protective equipment to support first responders and emergency personnel as they work in their communities following Hurricane Harvey. Delta Industrial Service and Supply, a Honeywell distributor in Texas, has been in contact with local and regional fire departments about their equipment needs and will coordinate distribution of the donated gear to fire departments. Fire departments should contact Delta at 1-800-249-5292 for more information, according to Honeywell's announcement.

The storm displaced thousands of families and caused billions of dollars in losses. It also damaged the equipment and PPE needed by many fire departments and first responders to respond to emergencies in their communities, the company reported, adding that it will donate nearly 100,000 pieces of PPE to support first responders and emergency personnel in the region affected by the storm -- apparel, footwear, gloves, disposable respiratory masks, eyewear, hard hats, hearing protection, and high-visibility T-shirts and coats.

"This past week has been an impossibly difficult one for many Texans as Hurricane Harvey caused mass devastation in Texas and along the U.S. Gulf Coast. Our thoughts are with the many thousands of families whose lives have been disrupted," said Darius Adamczyk, Honeywell's president and CEO. "In addition to supporting first responders, Honeywell will provide employees in the area with protective safety gear to support their personal needs along with emergency financial support through our humanitarian relief program."

"Under these extraordinary circumstances, we want to help volunteers, employees, and our customers to be as safe as possible," added John Waldron, president of Honeywell Safety and Productivity Solutions. "We are proud of the great work being done by first responders and so many others, and we are thankful for the ability to help those on the front lines who provide help where it is needed the most."

The company reported it has nearly 1,000 employees across nine sites in the Houston metropolitan area and 100 employees in Orange, Texas. The Honeywell Humanitarian Relief Fund is supporting Honeywell employees who have been affected by the flooding and the company is matching employee contributions to the fund dollar for dollar. Honeywell has donated more than $9.8 million during the past decade to aid disaster relief around the world, and more than 1,400 employees have received emergency assistance.
