BASF recently donated 60 respirators to the Red Bank Fire Department in observation of Fire Prevention Week. The BASF facility recently upgraded its emergency response respirators and contacted the Red Bank Fire Department about the donation.

Participating in Fire Prevention Week is part of BASF's ongoing commitment to ensure safe working conditions and to maintain good communication with local first responders.

BASF's Chattanooga locations have achieved 28 years with zero lost-time incidents. With safety as a top priority, emergency response means always being prepared.

BASF not only promotes a safe work environment but also enables a safe home environment. BASF provided employees with fire extinguishers to take home with them during Fire Prevention Week.
