Consolidators: Service King Now Providing Collision Repairs in Chicago
Donated polyurethane spray foam insulation will go to the New York Says Thank You First Responder Rebuilding Fund and the Beach Haven Volunteer Fire Company Station.
BASF recently announced it will donate high performance polyurethane spray foam insulation to the New York Says Thank You (NYSTY) First Responder Rebuilding Fund and the Beach Haven Volunteer Fire Company Station to help with Hurricane Sandy rebuilding efforts.
The NYSTY First Responder Rebuilding Fund is a $5 million dollar operation organized to help rebuild 200 homes of underinsured Fire Department City of New York (FDNY), New York Police Department (NYPD) and New York Department of Sanitation (DSNY) first responders who had homes damaged by Hurricane Sandy.
The rebuilding of the homes is being supported by skilled volunteer labor, in-kind material suppliers, third-party financial donations and a national network of experts in disaster relief and long-term mass rebuilding projects.
The Beach Haven Volunteer Fire Company, established in 1883, is the oldest fire company in Ocean County, N.J. The station, now in the process of being rebuilt, received substantial damage during the storm while its firefighters were involved in more than 100 rescues of local residents from their homes.
Through its performance materials division, BASF will donate high performance spray foam to both projects. The spray foam provides buildings and homes with high insulation values, near-zero air permeability, increased building strength, severe weather and flood resistance, increased occupant comfort, improved indoor air quality and lower environmental impacts.
