Tough Computers For Tough Volunteers

New Jersey American Water announces a new program that provides rugged Toughbook computers to non-profit organizations, primarily volunteer firefighters and emergency responders in the company’s service areas. New Jersey American Water has a scheduled replacement program for some of its computer hardware including Toughbook computers.

“Though these computers no longer meet our company’s needs, they may still benefit firefighters and first responders in our communities,” said Peter A. Eschbach, director of Communications & External Affairs. “We’re launching our Toughbooks for Tough Volunteers (#Toughbooks4ToughVolunteers) to donate computers as tough as the community volunteers who will use them.”

The rugged, reliable computers are designed to withstand drops, spills and be used in the harsh environments that water utility employees frequently find themselves. “Hopefully the volunteers will make similar use of them in their environment,” said Eschbach.

Qualified volunteer emergency services organizations interested in being put on the company’s Toughbook wait list can find more information at
