Globe Gear Giveaway 2018
Globe - the largest and most trusted manufacturer of structural firesuits in the world - has partnered with DuPont Protection Solutions and the National Volunteer Fire Council (NVFC) to give away 52 sets of gear to 13 volunteer fire departments in need (4 sets per department recipient). This is the seventh year of the gear giveaway program.
To be eligible to apply for four sets of Globe turnout gear, departments must meet the following requirements:
* Be all-volunteer or mostly-volunteer (over 50%)
* Serve a population of 25,000 or less
* Be located in the U.S. or Canada and be legally organized under state/province law
* Demonstrate a need for the gear
* Only one application will be accepted per department. Any subsequent applications received for that department will be disqualified.
* Either the department or individual applying on behalf of the department must be a member of the NVFC. Globe provided complimentary NVFC memberships to the first 500 applicants. Please note that number has now been reached. If you do not have an NVFC membership, please sign up by the application deadline of June 1 for your gear application to be eligible.
