IMTT donation of turnout gear helps firefighters prevent and prepare

Bayonne – It’s a welcome donation and the city is very happy about it — 11 sets of firefighter turnout gear from IMTT.

The gear is valued at nearly $30,000 and IMTT representatives, including Terminal Manager Michael Morganti were on hand Friday to present it to Mayor Jimmy Davis, Fire Chief Keith Weaver and Deputy Fire Chiefs Stephen Peterson and William Bartos.

“This donation is greatly appreciated and shows just how exceptional IMTT is as a corporate neighbor,” Davis says. “The turnout gear is critical for keeping our firefighters safe when they come in contact with hazardous conditions in the course of their duties.”

Davis calls safety of the utmost importance, and this gear will go a long way in keeping our firefighters protected.

“Many thanks to IMTT for their continued partnership with the Fire Department and City of Bayonne as they support our efforts,” Chief Weaver says.
