As the United States battles fires across the nation, NewView Oklahoma (NVO) supports by supplying fire hoses to the U.S. Forest Service. NewView is an essential part of fighting the destructive fires as it has continually provided the U.S. Forest Service with fire hoses.
Since 2001, NewView Oklahoma has assembled and distributed hoses. In past years, it has supplied and tested over a million hoses for the U.S. Forest Service.
NewView produces hoses in any size or quantity, depending on your need. Lengths are available in 25, 50 or 100 feet, and diameter can range from small garden hoses to four inches. An ENCAMPTM coating is available for extra abrasion and UV resistance.
“NewView Oklahoma support the men and women heroic efforts of U.S. Forest Service, not only do we provide a product for the federal government but while providing meaningful work to individuals who are or visually impaired or blind,” said NewView CEO Lauren Branch.
NewView Oklahoma is the state’s leading employer of individuals who are blind and visually impaired. Individuals can work in manufacturing, administrative, management or rehabilitation positions. Not only does NewView provide jobs for the visually blind, but it also offers community programs such as art classes, a dragon boating team, summer camps and support groups.
