Milwaukee Tools Support EFRU

June 15, 2016 in General

topImageJuly2015_2The Emergency Fire & Rescue Unit (EFRU)’s active involvement in EVOLSAR brought forward the need for more specialized equipment that can be used by its Urban Search & Rescue (USAR) Team.Therefore, it has started to invest effort in obtaining equipment that is essential for the saving of lives should disasters strike.

Being a voluntary organisation, the EFRU could not fulfil this objective on its own accord and thus, sought the assistance of ProTrade Malta Ltd that showed interested in this project and reached out to support EFRU in attaining its targets for 2016. Thanks to its principal brand, Milwaukee, the heavy-duty power tools manufacturer, ProTrade Malta Ltd sponsored various Milwaukee Tools to the EFRU. The official presentation of the sponsored equipment was organised on Saturday the 11th of June 2016.

ProTrade Malta Ltd Directors, represented by Mr. Stephen Barbara, explained that Milwaukee’s Management and Marketing team believed in EFRU’s cause and immediately sought means with which to authorise the sponsor. He explained that ProTrade Malta Ltd is glad to kick off such a relationship in this manner and added that his company will be working closely with the Unit in the coming months to guide the rescuers better in the correct usage and potential of the sponsored tools. The EFRU Director, on behalf of all the committee and volunteers, thanked ProTrade Malta Ltd Directors and augured that this occasion will be the first of many more where ProTrade Malta Ltd and Milwaukee will be on the forefront to assist the volunteer Unit in reaching its objectives.
