The Perlon® Group provides support to the fire service in the Darmstadt-Dieburg district in the form of KN 95 protective masks
Mon April 27, 2020
Through its global network, the Perlon®-Group is supporting the procurement measures of the volunteer fire service in the Darmstadt-Dieburg district by donating 2400 KN 95 protective masks. This protective equipment will be put to good use by the force covering 23 towns and communities in the area.
The masks offer protection for fire brigade personnel and ensure that the firemen and women can carry out their duties safely and that they also protect the inhabitants in the district and everybody else in the area who may be involved in a rescue, from a potential contamination of the Corona virus.
The Perlon®-Group is aware of its responsibility to our society and would like to set a good example.
The picture shows the Perlon®-Group CEO, Florian Kisling who himself has been the voluntary community fire inspector for Münster in the Darmstadt-Dieburg district for many years, handing over the masks to the Darmstadt-Dieburg deputy district fire inspector Mr Matthias Maurer-Hardt.
