Our team from LINX, Port Kembla, recently gifted 30 new pairs of polarised safety glasses to the Oak Flats Rural Fire Brigade.
LINX Administration/Payroll and Accounts Officer, Danielle Paterson’s father is a volunteer with the Fire Brigade. A recent optometrist appointment revealed that he had suffered sun damage to his eyes which led him to purchase a pair of polarised glasses.
During back burning operations, he became aware that most of his team did not have protective eyewear and was compelled to take action.
Danielle was able to provide advice based on the protective eyewear our own teams use and, knowing that COVID-19 has restricted the brigade’s ability to fundraise, organised LINX’s sponsorship to provide her father’s brigade with 30 new pairs of polarised safety glasses.
These glasses will now be part of the protective gear for the brigade when they start their back burning operations in the coming months.
Danielle’s humble and significant gesture on behalf of the LINX team has expressed our shared value of Home Safely, Every Day, and how we demonstrate this commitment to the communities in which we operate.
