LyondellBassel, a multi-national plastics, chemical and refining companies headquartered in Houston, partnered with the Fire Fighters Foundation of Houston to donate life-saving equipment to the Houston Fire Department in August.
“This year and last year, Houston suffered some of the most dangerous and life-threatening severe weather conditions in our city’s history. Our first responders worked overtime to ensure the safety of our residents and I want to thank them again,” said Mayor Sylvester Turner. "Thanks to the generosity of LyondellBassel and the Fire Fighters Foundation, they donated some rescue boats and trailers to use when called to duty. The boats and trailers have already been deployed to use during an emergency. I view this partnership as an indication of how much stronger Houston can be when the public and private sector work together."
