The Dex-Pro Glove is a 3D design that incorporates innovative design features together with specific materials to form a glove that delivers maximum dexterity, extreme durability and superior protection. Every material chosen for the Dex-Pro glove was done so with these three things in mind.
The Great Atlanta Fire of 1917 was a consolidation of four fires during the morning and afternoon of Monday, May 21st, 1917. Beginning at 11:39 a.m., the first fire erupted on the West End of the city at the Candler Warehouse. Just four minutes later, another fire was reported at a cotton warehouse in the downtown area. The third fire started at 12:15 p.m., on Woodward Avenue. Roughly thirty-one minutes later, the roof of a building located on Decatur Street burst into flames.

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!
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.
