Tronox Henderson plant employees, Mike Skromyda and John Holmstrom, were recently invited to take part in a proclamation presentation at the Henderson City Council meeting. The proclamation was presented to the Henderson Fire Department in recognition of Emergency Preparedness Week, an effort spearheaded by the city’s Emergency Management Department.
Tronox employees were invited by the firefighters and City of Henderson Emergency Management Department to participate in the presentation due to their involvement in the new Reverse 911 Project being implemented in Henderson, an emergency response initiative that involves Tronox, other local industries, and the Henderson firefighters.
Reverse 911 is a system used to issue warnings of potential hazards to the public community. The software application combines mapping and database technologies, enabling law enforcement, fire/EMS, emergency management and military operations to identify and automatically alert people inside certain geographic locations of potential hazards. It also provides notification of personnel, volunteers and others, quickly mobilizing them for emergency response.
Tronox is proud to assist in precautionary efforts to ensure the safety of the Henderson community through this partnership. Employees were honored to be a part of this special presentation, and they look forward to continuing to work with the Henderson Fire Department in the future.
