MILWAUKEE (September 13, 2017) —  The Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) has donated $5,000 to the American Red Cross to assist with Hurricane Irma relief efforts.

This is in addition to the Association’s previous $5,000 donation in response to Hurricane Harvey.

“These natural disasters have affected, and will continue to impact, hundreds of thousands of people, and we are glad to be able to support the humanitarian effort alongside our members who are providing equipment like generators and utility and construction equipment to help restore quality of life,” said AEM President Dennis Slater.

AEM has also set up a link through its ICUEE, The Demo Expo trade show website to offer attendees the opportunity to donate to the Red Cross.

Visit to contribute directly to the Red Cross or via a show registration.

“Many of our show attendees are also the frontline workers in the cleanup in Texas and Florida. Utility industry professionals know first-hand the challenges involved and have always demonstrated their willingness to help those in need through the work they do in recovery efforts,” said Slater.
