MORRISTOWN, N.J., Nov. 6, 2012
MORRISTOWN, N.J., Nov. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --Honeywell (NYSE: HON) announced
today it is donating more than $600,000 in first responder products to aid in
relief and recovery efforts in areas devastated by Hurricane Sandy.
Honeywell, the makers of Morning Pride turnout gear for first responders, will
donate more than 19,000 personal protective products including protective
footwear, gloves, hoods and helmets, designed to weather the most arduous
conditions first responders face every day. The protective gear will be
distributed via the Nassau County Office of Emergency Management in Long
Island, New York, to first responder teams in affected areas in New York and
"As the world's leading provider of personal protective equipment, we are
deeply committed to worker safety and to helping those on the front lines of
rescue and recovery efforts remain safe," said Honeywell Chairman and Chief
Executive Officer Dave Cote. "Honeywell employees work and live in these
communities, these are our own hometowns and we feel a sense of responsibility
to support the first responders there."
Honeywell also announced the Honeywell Humanitarian Relief Fund (HHRF) has
been deployed to support employees who have been affected by the devastating
hurricane. Support will initially include immediate cash assistance for food,
clothing, and shelter to employees who have been temporarily displaced.
Honeywell will also match employee contributions to HHRF dollar for dollar.
"With a significant presence in the tri-state area, many of our employees have
felt the impact of Hurricane Sandy's destruction," Cote added. "The fund will
help with longer-term needs once the extent of the damage has been assessed
and local efforts turn to rebuilding."
Over the last year, Honeywell has donated more than $1 million of safety
products to support disaster relief, first responder and other non-profit
agencies to protect those serving our communities. Through the HHRF, the
company and thousands of Honeywell employees have responded with donations and
long-term rebuilding efforts for other tragedies in recent years, such as the
tsunami in Japan, the Colorado wildfires, the earthquake in Haiti, tornadoes
in North Carolina, hurricanes Ike and Katrina, and the earthquake in China.
