On Deck at the DEX
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.
