Living Our Values: Supporting the Idaho Falls Community

Posted On: November 11, 2019

We are proud to donate funds to the Idaho Falls Fire Department so the organization is able to purchase new life-saving equipment to benefit people involved in accidents.

Brian Gustaveson, Plant Manager, and Lacie Rich, HR Generalist, presented the IFFD with a check for $11,124 on Friday, November 8th, 2019. This donation will be used to purchase critical equipment used in technical rescues, such as those that occur in confined spaces and at high angles. Individuals who are part of the Technical Rescue Team work full time for the department and commit to additional training, including high angle rope rescues, confined space rescues, trench rescues, building collapses and rescues, and heavy extrications.

“Donations such as these change the dynamic of what we can do and make us an even stronger department,” says IFFD Fire Chief Duane Nelson.

The donation is part of our annual Corporate Giving Program, which benefits organizations throughout the communities where we do business. A core value of BAF is to ‘Make Things Better,’ and that statement means we are committed to making a meaningful difference – in our employees’ lives, for our customers, and in the larger communities where we work and live. Living our values is an important part of our culture at BAF and our Corporate Giving Program is just one way we put our values into action.
