- Madison, Ala. - Employees at International Fire Protection (IFP) helped build a home for veteran and wounded warrior Army CPL Jeffery Williams. Fourteen IFP employees and their families framed the Williams' home from slab to water tight and installed the sprinkler system.
IFP participated in the Build Brigade for Homes for Our Troops in June and July. Reliable, a well-known fire protection supplier, donated the material for this project.
"God bless your hearts," said Williams, who was paralyzed by an explosion in Iraq in May 2004. "Even in times like these, it's a good feeling knowing that there are great Americans out there willing to help."
Williams' HUMVEE was hit by an IED
that killed two comrades and severely injured him and another soldier. Williams spent one year in the hospital.
"We're glad to be able to help anyone who has given so much for our country," said IFP District Manager, Matt Gardner.
"I would like to thank the guys for the help at the Build Brigade, we would not have been able to do it without you," said Daniel Lovendale, project manager for Homes for Our Troops. "You were a huge help!"
