The number one priority at Manchester Tank & Equipment in Quincy, Illinois (MTQ), is the safety of all of its team members. So when the Tri Township Fire Department asked MTQ to help purchase equipment for use during confined space rescues, they were more than happy to help out. MTQ has 75 confined space locations on their property. The self-contained breathing apparatus system that the fire department purchased will provide oxygen for two firemen for around an hour during a confined space rescue.
On December 3, MTQ EHS Manager Rick Nesbit presented a check for $1,750 to Tri Township Fire Chief Rick Zaerr.
This is just one of the ways that McWane is paying it forward in the communities where our team members live and work.
