Hexagon Digital Wave to provide humanitarian aid to the Ukrainian State Fire Service

Jun 08, 2022 - Press Release

CENTENNIAL, CO., April 8, 2022 /PRNews/ -- As the conflict in Ukraine continues to escalate, Hexagon Digital Wave in partnership with Firefighter Aid Ukraine (FAU), commits to providing humanitarian aid in the form of life-supporting breathing air cylinders to the Ukraine State Fire Service.

Using its patented technology and US DOT special permit, Hexagon Digital Wave will extend the usable service life of high pressure, carbon fiber self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) cylinders and providing a breathing air compressor to aid in FAU’s mission to support the brave men and women of the State Fire Service in Ukraine. The testing process will be finalized shortly, and the cylinders will then be shipped to their destination.

“At Hexagon Digital Wave, our priority is the safety and wellbeing of our people, those in the communities in which we live and work, and to the world community as well. We see it as an obligation to do what we can, through the appropriate channels, to support the humanitarian crisis unfolding in Ukraine.”, says Melissa Holler, President, Hexagon Digital Wave. “This approach is in line with the purpose and values that define the Hexagon Group. Our hearts and minds are with everyone impacted by this conflict.”

The product donation will be made through the organization, Firefighter Aid for Ukraine (FAU). FAU’s mission is to collect surplus firefighter bunker/turnout gear, personal protective equipment (PPE), life rescue equipment, and medical supplies from fire departments and vendors in North America. FAU also aims to raise the necessary funds to send these goods to first responders in various locations of Ukraine who are in desperate need of equipment and supplies required to fulfill their duties to serve and protect citizens, while ensuring their safety.

“Firefighter Aid Ukraine has been providing aid to our brothers and sisters in Ukraine for nearly a decade, but it's the generosity we receive from organizations, communities, and businesses that have made our project successful. Without that support, none of the aid we've provided would have been possible.”, says Kevin Royle, Project Director, Firefighter Aid Ukraine.
