Sea-Fire Marine, together with the Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay, recently hosted a cleanup site as part of Project Clean Stream, an annual event where more than 5,000 volunteers from across the Chesapeake Bay region choose a stream from which to pick up trash.

Forty percent of Sea-Fire employees participated and they removed 64 bags of trash. Sea-Fire's cleanup site is a portion of White Marsh Run that flows just behind the company's office in Baltimore. Sea-Fire makes fire extinguishers and fire-suppression systems.

“Sea-Fire understands its role as a citizen of the Chesapeake Bay region and is constantly working to promote and ensure a cleaner and safer environment,” company president Ernie Ellis said in a statement. “I'm very glad Sea-Fire employees volunteered for such a worthy cause.”

The Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay has coordinated Project Clean Stream for eight years in conjunction with partnering watershed organizations.
