Fire-Dex and United Fire Give Back to the Yarnell Fire Department


Earlier this month at the Arizona Fire School, Fire-Dex along with our distributor, United Fire Equipment Company, gave 20 sets of Fire-Dex Wildlands gear to the Yarrnell Fire Department.

Earlier this year on June 30th, you may recall the Yarnell Fire Department lost 19 of its Granite Mountain Hotshot Firefighters in a tragic fire in Prescott, Arizona.  We are proud to support their fire family as they begin rebuilding their lives and department.

Further, since the event we have donated additional Fire-Dex gear, 9 Extrication Overalls and 2 Wildland Coats.

If you would lilke to support the Yarnell FD in their efforts to rebuild and recover, you may donate to the National Fallen Firefighter Foundation managed fund, the Yarnell Hill Fallen Firefighters Fund. This fund was created to provide the families, friends and colleagues immediate help and assistance.  The NFFF states that 100% of the monies collected will be used for this purpose.  To donate to this fund, please send your check to NFFF, c/o Yarnell Hill Fallen Firefighters Fund, PO Drawer 498, Emmitsburg, MD 21727 or you may also donate online.
