Fireaway Inc., the manufacturer of the Stat-X® condensed aerosol fire suppression product line, was a sponsor at the James Goerl Memorial Golf Tournament which was held at the New York Country Club today.
The Jim Goerl Memorial Gold Outing is in remembrance of one of the true leaders of our industry who lost his life much too soon. Jim was a former president of the SFPE NY Metro Chapter in 2002. He was a leader of the Chapter and ran multiple golf outings which he planned so successfully. Jim’s two sons, Matthew and Nicholas, also golfed in this event.
The purpose of our outing was something Jim was very passionate about and that was helping foster the engineering careers for people coming up into our industry.
Lance D. Harry, our CEO and president played in the tournament and was part of the winning foursome!
All proceeds go to the SFPE NJ/NY Metro Chapter Education Foundation’s Scholarship Program to raise money for students in the fire protection engineering industry.
Fireaway is also a member of the SFPE organization and work with many of their chapters globally.
