No Trade Conference? No problem. MSA launches Digital Week to Bring New Safety Technology to Firefighters
BERLIN, June 15, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- While the Coronavirus pandemic has put many of our daily routines on hold, for a firefighter, life is never "on hold" as emergencies and natural disasters never stop. Accordingly, MSA Safety Incorporated (NYSE: MSA) today announced the kick-off of a week-long event – called MSA: Connected – that will use digital technologies to provide firefighters and first responders with the the latest information on various product and technology-based safety solutions. This free online training series is accessible via MSAsafety.com and will take place the 15th to 20th June.
"The timing of MSA: Connected is not a coincidence," said Yohan Morel, MSA Senior Marketing Manager, First Responder, Europe. "Interschutz, the world's largest trade fair focusing on fire service and security, was originally scheduled for this week in Hannover, Germany. Because we recognize the value and knowledge our customers gain by attending conferences like this in person, our vision is to create a unique experience for customers that helps them stay connected with the latest in firefighter safety technology."
Among the many activities scheduled are a series of live webinars that offer participants the opportunity to connect directly with MSA safety technology experts. Topics for these sessions include voice communications, technology standards, best practices to help reduce contamination risk, among many others.
