Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefisch and Administrator Brian Satula (Wisconsin Emergency Management) stopped by for a tour of our Solberg facility in Green Bay, Wisconsin, on Monday, June 29. Solberg is the firefighting foam division of Amerex Corporation.
Lt. Governor Kleefisch thanked team members for their dedication and support to public safety in Wisconsin and discussed the establishment of a public/private partnership on firefighting foam between Solberg and the Wisconsin Emergency Management. Under the cooperative agreement, the state will have access to a supply of firefighting foam in emergency situations such as a crude oil fire or other large scale industrial fire incidents.
“This is a great partnership between the Solberg Company and the State of Wisconsin,” said Wisconsin Emergency Management Administrator Brian Satula. “Having foam ready to be deployed is important as we have increased rail transportation of crude oil in the state.”
