Fire-Dex goes pink! In support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we created pink turnout and EMS extrication gear for our distributor Ten-8 Equipment and their customer, the Guardians of the Ribbon, Georgia Chapter.
Pictured above is Sherry Deveraux. Sherry works in our liners department. Great work by all!
Last Monday we released our first photo for our “Kickin It..Summer 2011″ boot promotion. We already have some funny entries about our adorable future firefighter, Hayden. Get the details and rules of the monthly boot giveaway. And, remember, you get one entry per week regardless of the number of times you enter a caption.
Here’s Hayden and some of our favorite captions for this week (so far):
Brian: ”I made a mess. You’re gonna need some gloves, turnout gear, an SCBA and these boots.”
Keith: “You think I’m cute, you should have seen the girls that were wearing these boots at FDIC!”
Chris: “My daddies two favorite things… me and his Fire-dex!”
Adam: ”Mom, forget the teddy bear…”
Go ahead! Add your caption and watch next week for our next photo.
Congratulations to Tom Trzepacz, Chief of the Bowmansville, N.Y. Volunteer Fire Association, the first Fire-Dex Friday hood winner!
Tom is in his 14th year with the Bowmansville Volunteer Fire Association and fourth as its Chief. BVFA serves both Bowmansville and Lancaster, N.Y., answering about 750 alarms each year and providing fire, rescue and basic-level emergency medical services.
Being a part of the Bowmansville VFA is a family affair for the Trzepacz clan. Tom’s father, two brothers, a sister, a brother-in-law, a sister-in-law and a nephew are all members. His grandfather was also a firefighter and Tom has a number of uncles and cousins that are firefighters in other companies.
Tom’s full-time job is working at Performance Advantage Company in Lancaster, which specializes in tool and equipment mounting systems for the fire service and the military worldwide. He has been married for four years and has 3-year-old and 5-month-old sons, who, unfortunately, are not big enough yet to fit into our very cool Fire-Dex hoods.
