Bolivia, a small country in South America, is mostly known for it’s rich natural resources and unique “Law of the Rights of Mother Earth”. The country can now be recognized as one that provides quality turnout gear to their firefighters.
The province of Santa Cruz, Bolivia recently made a large purchase of fire suits and helmets from Fire-Dex. A press conference was held to present the equipment. Calling the fire suits “state of the art with the latest technology”; the fire department proudly displayed their new Chieftain turnout gear.
We would like thank Robert Lostal of Safety Source International for facilitating this purchase.
Fire-Dex is a premiere fire protection gear company. Manufacturing firefighting equipment from fire helmet to fire boots and everything in between, Fire-Dex protects those who risk personal peril in service of others.
Captain Josh Conder has been a volunteer firefighter with the South Macon Fire Protection District for 11 years. Earlier this year, Josh read an article about a firefighter walking in turnout gear to benefit a charity and it gave him an idea.
His wife’s family walks in Relay for Life every year in Henderson County, Illinois. They walk in memory of his wife’s grandfather, Paul. Their team’s name is “Paul’s Girls” and this year Josh is a member of Paul’s Girls.
Josh will be walking the entire 24 miles in 12 hours in his new Fire-Dex FX-R gear. He is scheduled to receive his new gear in early July, just in time for the July 13th, Relay for Life event.
Feel free to donate and support Josh’s team, Paul’s Girls. The team is trying to raise more money than the “local bank” that always beats the Paul’s Girls team. We will follow Josh’s progress and share it on the Fire-Dex Facebook page.
We would like to thank Josh’s Fire-Dex distributor rep, Mark Nixon from A.E.C. Fire & Safety, for sharing Josh’s story with us.
