As part of the celebration of the 79th Anniversary of the creation of the Asociación Bomberos Voluntarios de Primeros Auxilios de Comodoro Rivadavia (Volunteer Firefighters), Pan American Energy (PAE) delivered special equipment to the Central Fire Station in the city, within the framework of the Program to Cooperate with Community Service Institutions that the company promotes in Golfo San Jorge (GSJ).
During the ceremony, which included the start-up of the new facilities for the Fire Station, PAE donated 11 sets of Personal and Protective Equipment, complete with helmets, boots, protective hoods, and gloves.
The president of the Volunteer Firefighters' Association, Carlos Marcolla, thanked the company for their new contribution and for their sustained commitment. The new building boasts a plaque that recognizes PAE for their ongoing commitment to the Firefighters' Association at Comodoro Rivadavia.
From Institutional Relations at PAE, Juan Taccari, remarked, "For several years now we have promoted this cooperation program to provide support and strengthen the institutions that work to take care of their community. Our work in this sense is driven by the real needs of the different fire departments, so that we can help in the most effective way."
This new contribution by PAE represents the continuation of a plan that has been designed and implemented by the company over the last several years to support the civil organizations in the region by providing for their equipment, vehicles, fuel and training needs.
During July, PAE will also donate equipment to the fire stations in Rada Tilly, Sarmiento, Camarones, Rio Mayo in the province of Chubut, and also in the province of Santa Cruz, in the cities of Pico Truncado and Koluel Kayke.
PAE's Leader from CSR and Public Affairs at GSJ, Horacio Garcia, added, "We are planning to continue with this process and help the Association with the training of the volunteers, strengthening their knowledge. PAE believes it is very important to provide support to the institutions that are charged with protecting their neighbors."
