Hatch responds to the Moore Tornado recovery team by donating Operator HK field gloves to first responders sifting through debris. After just one day of searching through sharp and heavy ruins, the first responders’ were left with shredded gloves, making it difficult for them to assist the community in the search and rescue efforts.

“Supplying gloves to those who are out doing this heroic work is the very least we can do,” said Adam Avitabile, Category Manager, Hatch. “It’s heartening to see all the different companies in our industry come together with donated shirts, pants, boots and gloves at such a critical time.”

The Operator HK field gloves are constructed of 100 percent Kevlar fabric and are designed with hard knuckle protection and strategically placed high-density foam, ideal for the job at hand. They were delivered to Special Ops Uniforms, the local distributor in the area, who provided them to the rescue and recovery operators searching through the wreckage following the devastating tornado that hit Okla. on Monday, May 20.
