Georgia-Pacific Industrial Gypsum ended the 2021 season of giving with the Camden City Fire Department in New Jersey. Many fire and rescue departments are exhausting their supplies during these unpredictable times while serving the public as first responders. Updated equipment in good working order is critical for first responders to do their job safely within the community, which is why Georgia-Pacific presented FAST Rescue Boards and interior LED lighting attachments to the Camden City Fire Department. FAST Rescue Boards are designed for ease during fire rescues, patient packaging, and extractions from confined spaces and hazardous materials. In addition to the new boards and lights, a training package was donated to help complete basic FAST Rescue Board training on their new equipment.

The donation was presented to the Camden City Fire Department Fire Chief, Michael Harper, at the Liberty Station in Camden, New Jersey, by Georgia-Pacific Industrial Gypsum’s Jason Parker and Christopher Shaw.

Camden, New Jersey, is home to one of Georgia-Pacific’s Industrial Gypsum facilities. As stewards to the community, Georgia-Pacific hopes the donation will relieve some of the fire department’s strain and help save lives.
