Fire-Dex Supports Tunnel to Towers

As the 15th Anniversary of September 11, 2001 approaches, all of us at Fire-Dex pause to remember those that perished protecting and serving others on that fateful day. As do most, we remember exactly where we were and what we were doing when we heard.

Over the years, we have written, shared and created historical pieces focusing on the day and what it meant to those serving in the fire service and those supporting the men and women serving their communities. It impacted all of us and life on the other side of 9/11/01 has never been the same.

This year, in support of the Tunnel to Towers Foundation, we will be supporting the participants of the 15th anniversary 5K being hosted in our hometown, Medina, Ohio.

Nick Burkholder of Interstate Rescue

Sales Representative of the Month – Nick Burkholder of Interstate Rescue

Our Sales Rep of the Month, Nick Burkholder, has been a volunteer firefighter for 17 years, starting his career at a small department, Blue Ridge VFD, near his home in Botetourt County, VA. 
 

Nick went on to be a firefighter overseas in Iraq and Afghanistan for about 9 years. While in Afghanistan he was a big part of Logistics and had a large hand in the purchase of Fire-Dex Turnout Gear for all of Northern Afghanistan.

Nick started at Interstate Rescue in 2010 while back home on a 10 month break, before going back overseas for another 4 years. He started back at Interstate Rescue upon his return in 2014 as a Product Specialist. A year later he was given the opportunity to become the Sales Manager for Virginia and West Virginia and he jumped in with both feet and hit the ground running. 
 
Nick has gone above and beyond to gain market share in West Virginia. He has managed his team well and is always there to fill in when needed. He’s done a great job building relationships with fire departments, earning their respect and gaining their business. 
 
Nick is married and has two sons, ages 7 and 12. In his limited spare time, he enjoys the outdoors and the water – going out on the boat, fishing, hunting, and hiking and he likes to travel.
 
Congratulations on being nominated as our Sales Rep of the Month, Nick, and thank you for loyalty to Fire-Dex, your dedication and hard work for Interstate Rescue, and your service to communities around the world!
