New Jersey-Based Envirosight Donates Equipment to Aid in Japan’s Recovery
QuickView zoom inspection cameras donated by Envirosight to be used in recovery and rebuilding of areas of Japan hit by tsunami.
Randolph, NJ (PRWEB) May 04, 2011
Randolph, NJ-based Envirosight has donated equipment to assist with recovery and rebuilding in Japan following the devastating earthquake and tsunami. This equipment, designed to allow remote inspection of confined spaces, is being used by the Japan Self-Defense Force and its contractors in recovery efforts to perform safe remote searches of debris piles, and will also assist with the inspection and rebuilding of municipal infrastructure, such as underground pipelines, culverts and bridges.
The donation is being coordinated through Envirosight’s Japan affiliate, Kantool (http://www.kantool.co.jp/). The donation consists of five QuickView telescoping zoom inspection cameras (http://envirosight.com/index.php/zooming/quickview/overview.html).
“When the unthinkable happens, nothing feels worse than just standing on the sidelines,” says Richard Lindner, President of Envirosight. “Fortunately, the equipment we make is exactly what they need in Japan now, and we’re very happy to make a donation that will have a direct, positive impact. Kantool, our partner in Japan, has extended deep gratitude on behalf of themselves and the beneficiaries of the donation.”
Envirosight equipment is used primarily to inspect municipal and industrial infrastructure, but has also been used as part of search and rescue operations, covert surveillance, and law enforcement, and was used extensively at the World Trade Center in the aftermath of September 11, 2001.
