Jersey Proud: Edison teen honored for Eagle Scout project benefiting firefighters

An Edison teen was honored for his Eagle Scout project, which helps firefighters in Woodbridge.
Building and creating is Matteo Pittenger's hobby - and his 3-D printer helps with that process.
The Avenel Fire Department recognized Pittenger for building a turnout gear drying rack.
When firefighters come back from a call, they are often drenched in water. They hang their equipment on the rack, which consists of a fan that circulates air through the piping to dry the gear.
Pittenger says it took a couple months for the equipment and approvals. Once he got the OK, he built it in four days .
Pittenger is now an Eagle Scout for his Jersey Proud creation and donation.
