In January and February, Fire-Dex gave back in a number of ways. We always strive to give back and participate in causes near and dear to our heart. Below are highlights of our community contributions.
The 24th Annual Medina Ice Festival: Fire-Dex participated in the Medina Ice Festival, which brought in 20,000 residents from Medina, surrounding communities, and travelers from out of state. We had a blast sponsoring this event and showcasing a sculpture of our own!
American Heart Association: On February 22, the Fire-Dex Family went red in support of the American Heart Association and Heart Health Month.
The National Navy SEAL Museum: In February, we donated $1,000 to the National Navy SEAL Museum, which helps the museum to continue to strengthen their programs and to develop new and innovative projects for members and the public. Located in Fort Pierce, Florida, it is the only museum dedicated solely to preserving the history of the United States Navy SEALs and their predecessors.
The Fire Service: In January, we gave away a H41 Interceptor™ Hood to show our appreciation for those serving in the fire service. In February, we gave away a pair of Dex-Pro Gloves. We are giving away the H41 Interceptor Fire Hood™ on April 13th. Enter the giveaway here.
The Fire-Dex H41 Interceptor™ Hood with Nomex® Nano Flex was designed to keep potentially carcinogenic particulates and other harmful contaminants off of firefighters’ jaws, faces, and necks. These areas have been identified as highly absorptive and more permeable than other areas of skin.
Spotsylvania County Fire, Rescue, and Emergency Management recently purchased the H41 Interceptor™ Hoods and were not disappointed. This particulate barrier hood is scientifically-tested to block 98% of carcinogenic particulates.
“Our department continues to implement new technologies and practices to protect responders as they work to serve our community. These new hoods are composed of materials that not only protect our firefighters from fire and heat, but also help protect them from cancer causing microparticle carcinogens,” they shared in a Facebook post.
Congratulations to our DEX-PRO Glove winner, Firefighter John Boyles from Anderson County, Kentucky. Next month, we will be giving away an H41 Interceptor™Hood. John, you will receive an email with more instructions about sizing and delivery.
Congratulations to our January, Fire-Dex H41 Interceptor Hood winner, Assistant Fire Chief Amy Garcia from the Taft Volunteer Fire Department in Texas.
Next month we will be giving away a pair of Dex-Pro Gloves. Be sure to check back with us next month for entry to that contest! Chief Garcia, you will receive an email with more instructions about sizing and delivery.
