Carrier Room Air Purifiers Help Bring Comfort to Those Impacted by East Palestine, OH Train Derailment


In support of the East Palestine community affected by a train derailment that occurred earlier this year, Carrier has teamed up with Refrigeration Sales Corp. and Second Harvest Food Bank of the Mahoning Valley to donate 500 room air purifiers to recovery efforts. The units monitor the room air quality and deliver cleaner indoor air by adjusting air intake levels up to 18-speeds for optimal purification. Carrier is a part of Carrier Global Corporation (NYSE: CARR), global leader in intelligent climate and energy solutions.

“We’re proud to support the East Palestine community,” said Justin Keppy, President, NA Residential & Light Commercial HVAC, Carrier. “As residents continue navigating recovery efforts, our units will empower them to take control of their indoor environment. From filtering out harmful particulates in the air to odor mitigation, homeowners’ peace of mind is our top concern.”

At a press event hosted in late June, Mike Iberis, Second Harvest Executive Director, said, “This is an example of people helping people. The people of East Palestine have gone through a disastrous situation. They are struggling down there and folks at Carrier knew that. When we approached them, they responded with this wonderful donation of 500 air purifiers.”
