"During our visit to the Statue of Liberty on Monday, Superintendent David Luchsinger and National Park Service staff provided tremendous information and assistance to us that enabled our team to move this project forward so quickly," said Joe Crookham, President, Musco Lighting.
This is not Musco's first time supporting America's national parks. Musco has provided in-kind services through the National Park Foundation to light the White House, the Washington Monument, the Flight 93 National Memorial and Big Bend National Park, among others.
Nearly 70 national parks sustained damage when Hurricane Sandy roared up the East Coast before making landfall on October 29 in southern New Jersey. Among those hardest hit were 15 parks located in the metropolitan New York area, where a response team comprised of more than 320 National Park Service employees from 101 national parks across the country are assisting in recovery efforts including providing assistance to National Park Service employees and their families impacted by the storm, damage assessments, emergency stabilization where needed, and beginning the clean-up of affected areas.
