Metro’s Kevin Kendall Joins BOD of Firefighters Without Borders

November 30, 2017

Kevin Kendall, Metro’s VP Operations, has accepted an appointment to the board of directors of Firefighters Without Borders. Founded by a group of Mississauga firefighters in tribute to 9/11 victims, FWB is a registered charity that supports firefighters around the globe by providing specialized training and supplies. The organization is dedicated to helping local fire departments get a “hand-up” so they are prepared to deal with the next emergency – big or small. Firefighters Without Borders has initiated projects in numerous countries in response to needs that range from under-prepared communities to critical lack of basic equipment and training. 

Logistics and warehousing is an increasingly important part of the value the organization can provide. Sustainability is the cornerstone of their operations – equipment warehousing, distribution and lifecycle planning all play a role in ensuring that the agencies supported can reach and then maintain a high level of emergency response preparedness.
