Globe gear up for grabs in giveaway contest
Feb. 24, 2015 - Good news for small, volunteer fire departments in need of new turnout gear: applications are now open for the 2015 Globe gear giveaway contest.
Globe, DuPont Protection Technologies and the National Volunteer Fire Council (NVFC) have teamed up again this year to give away turnout gear to fire departments in Canada and the United States that serve populations of 25,000 or less, and are either all or more than 50 per cent volunteer.
This year, 13 departments will be chosen to receive four sets of Globe’s CLASSIX turnout gear for their members.
The giveaway contest, which launched in 2012 to mark Globe’s 125th anniversary, has provided 247 sets of turnout gear to 43 departments.
While eligibility includes the criteria that applicants are members of the NVFC, Globe is providing the first 200 non-members who apply with free department memberships.
The deadline to apply is June 1. Learn more at www.nvfc.org/globe-gear-donation
