New Broome County Business Helps Local Fire Departments
The indoor trampoline park called Planet 3 Extreme Air Park, opened it's doors just a few months ago. They're located on North Jensen Road in Vestal right next door to Midway Lanes. And even though the business has only been open for a short period of time, they are already giving back to their community.
According to WBNG, Planet 3 is donating their used foam cubes from their jumping pits to local fire departments as well as a couple occupational therapist, who will use them for helping disabled children.
WBNG reports that local fire departments will use the foam in the training of their firemen, to teach them how to fall safely.
Tanya Briggs, the General Manager at Planet 3 Air Park, told WBNG that her husband is a Vestal Fire Fighter and he suggested that instead of throwing away the foam cubes, that they donate them to local fire departments instead.
According to the Planet 3 Airpark website, the facility offers extreme trapeze, extreme dodgeball, open jumps, and a ninja obstacle course, as well as many other activities. All the activities look like fun, and they make me wish that this place existed when I was younger.
