The “Kickin’ It…Summer 2011” Fire-Dex leather fire boot promotion continues. Take 33 seconds, enjoy the music, check out our boots and see the question at the end. We want to know “where your fire boots went today!”
Have fun and keep it clean. Good luck!
Fire-Dex leather fire boots are the only fire boot available where the technical designs were done by the same team that works with Nike, Adidas, Timberland and many other athletic worldwide brands. With an orthotic engineered sock liner, Multi-Density Footbed, Elastomer Performance Gel, Energy Return Polyurethane, and EVA Memory Foam – you will be able to work in these boots all day without foot pain distracting you.
The initial comments on our leather fire boot from this audience have been extremely positive. 90% of contestants state the comfort and fit are superior to the products that they are currently using and want to know where they can purchase them.
Here’s what our firefighters are saying…
Mike at FDIC: “Great comfort, light weight”
Lance on Facebook: “Loved the booth, besides the stylish boots and comfort rating, could wear them at 2012 all day!”
Steve on Twitter: “I really like the boots better than the ones I have now.”

well as 50/50 raffle, and several gift packages raffled. A gift card side
board and a one night stay at Kalahari waterpark and hotel, and a 42″ Vizio

Fire-Dex is proud to have this talented team of firefighters wearing special Fire-Dex gear. Last month, they had a tandem team place 4th and 5th out of 12 teams. Mark Koehler, Lakewood Combat Challenge team member, said the gear “worked out great, much lighter and more maneuverable without a doubt.” That’s what we like to hear!
Be watching our Facebook page for updates on the Lakewood Firefighters and Local 382 Combat Challenge team and their journey to the National and World competitions in November. Good luck to them!
Firefighting is tough, and at Fire-Dex we recognize your everyday challenges. In a constantly changing world, the nature of fighting fire is constantly evolving with the development of new threats, new materials, and new technologies. Since outer shell protection is the firefighter’s first line of defense, there is no room for compromise. That is why we only offer premium outer shell protection, like in our H81 Fire Hoods. The H81 fire hood is a 2-layer, long, seamless bib with notched shoulder. Its exclusive fabric combines unmatched flame and thermal protection with unsurpassed strength and durability.

- Flatlock seam construction
- Double layer

- H81 – Long seamless bib with shoulder notch
- Fuller sizing for one size fits all comfort
Fire-Dex® strives to offer the highest quality products and services through an environment of continuous improvement and innovative technologies. The Fire-Dex® Technology Lab is an on-site fabric-testing laboratory where fabrics and material combinations can be tested against NFPA standards in-house.
The Fire-Dex® Technology Lab tests materials and product ensembles to continually promote product improvement and innovation. Our Technology Lab rigorously tests fabrics, seams and ensembles to ensure compliance to NFPA standards and to explore new technologies on the market.
Each year, we host salespeople from our distributors to educate them on all the Fire-Dex gear and processes. Last week, at our Spring 2011 Fire-Dex University, we hosted 30 sales people from Florida to Ontario and Utah to New Jersey. The group toured our manufacturing center in Medina, Ohio, took training sessions taught by the one and only Fire-Dex sales team, and enjoyed networking with each other and the Fire-Dex family.
As you can see, we had a great time and look forward to our next university in September 2011.
