Norbord Donates to Fire Department

Untitled2Norbord’s Safety Manager, Earl (Buddy) Taylor and Matt Wilson (not pictured) presented new Leatherman Rebar multitools to members of the Jefferson Fire Department and Chief Rod Rodriguez.

The donation of the multitools was Norbord’s way of saying thank you to the local fire department for their continued support. “Any time we can give something meaningful and helpful to the Marion County community, it helps to create a positive relationship,” Taylor said.

“The roughly $3,000 donation is small in comparison to the efforts these first responders put into volunteering to provide us with an additional blanket of safety. We are happy to provide the fire department with the multitools and reflective safety vests, which will provide the first responders an additional level of safety when dealing as traffic control for accidents.”

The multitool is equipped with 17 tools, including knives, pliers, screwdrivers, wire cutters, an electrical crimper, a wire stripper, bottle and can openers, a file, a saw, an awl and a ruler, so the firefighters will have a high-quality tool to use in their daily operations.

In 2018, Norbord also donated new Class 2 ANSI high visibility reflective safety vests to the department and had them custom imprinted with the fire department’s seal.
