Bulwark Offering Free FR for Moore, OK Workers
The company announced the offer, both for oil or electrical workers directly affected by the recent tornado and electrical utility workers going there to assist, on May 23.
Free FR apparel from Bulwark is now available to electrical and oil workers who lost their workwear as a result of the devastating EF5 tornado that hit Moore, Okla., on May 20, as well as to electrical utility workers going there to assist. The company announced the offer May 23 on its blog and listed five distributors from whom the apparel can be obtained.
The blog post says the tragedy "makes us heart sick.
"Bulwark has been serving the roughnecks, fuel haulers, and refinery workers of the oil and gas industry for over four decades. And nowhere is our story more entwined with theirs than in this remarkable -- and resilient -- part of the country. Many of those impacted are friends, or folks that distribute, buy and wear our clothes. All weigh heavily on our mind.
"Come Monday, Oklahoma will need to go back to work. To fund the rebuilding of homes, families, and lives. The last thing we want them worrying about is 'do they have the safety gear required to work?'; 'Can they afford to replace the gear they lost?' We can help with that.
"For the next few weeks, Bulwark will provide free FR for those directly impacted by the tragedy in Moore. Workers in Oklahoma simply need to reach out to the Bulwark distributors listed below and we will take it from there. We would also like to extend this offer to electrical utility workers descending on Moore to help in reconstruction and relief. Many of these crews are hundreds of miles from home and may get caught short on FR. We'll lend a hand there, too.
"Ultimately, it's a small thing. But Oklahoma, this is also a family thing. And now more than ever, you need to know that your family extends well beyond your borders.
"Be safe. And stand strong."
