KASK America Supports Detroit Firefighters and Rescue Workers
CONCORD, N.C., May 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — KASK, is a leading provider of safety and recreational helmets and proponent of supporting the community in which they live and work. Thursday night, at the homecoming event of the Leary Foundation funded film Burn, KASK presented the Detroit Fire Department with 24 search and rescue helmets.
“We have always felt that access to quality safety equipment should be a priority for municipalities and corporations. Supporting those who serve and protect our community is the least we can do.” Said Gian Paolo Pasini, President and CEO, of KASK America.
KASK recently opened an office in the City of Detroit, located in the historic Fisher Building. “It was a matter of locating to a city whose infrastructure, proximity to clients and environment would benefit our US operations.” Said Pasini. “We got that in Detroit plus a community that values hard work and rewards loyalty.”
Members of the Detroit Fire Department will use the donation of the KASK safety helmets during critical search and rescue missions. “Having the correct equipment is critical.” Said Joe Flachman, Director of Marketing for CMC Rescue, a KASK distributor and strategic partner. “We believe that all fire departments should have the correct equipment for each critical call.”

“Although we are very well know in the US as a company that produces best in class biking, skiing and climbing helmets, we also produce the finest helmet for the active worker.” Pasini said. “With a growing understanding of the impact of head and neck injuries within sports, we believe the American worker deserves the same level of focus on head protection.”
