Globe Celebrates 125th Anniversary by Giving 125 Sets of Gear to Volunteer Departments

Eligible departments can apply at

Globe has reached a milestone and is celebrating by giving back to fire departments in need.  In honor of the company’s 125th anniversary, Globe has partnered with Dupont and the National Volunteer Fire Council (NVFC) to donate 125 sets of gear in 2012 to deserving fire departments.

Through this donation program, all-volunteer fire departments that serve a population of 25,000 or less and are in need of new gear can apply to receive up to 12 sets of Globe gear. Applications must be received by May 31, 2012, and awards will be announced monthly between July and December.

“All of us owe a huge debt of thanks to the volunteers who are the frontline of firefighting in communities across the country,” said Rob Freese, Globe Manufacturing Senior VP of Marketing, in making the announcement. “Working with these departments is incredibly gratifying, and we’re so glad to be able to take this opportunity to improve the safety and performance of some of these volunteer fire departments with limited resources by providing their members with the most advanced turnout gear.”

“We are very pleased to partner with Globe and Dupont for this incredible gear donation program,” said NVFC Chairman Philip C. Stittleburg. “Globe is an extraordinary example of a company saying thank you to its customers by giving back. So many volunteer fire departments are struggling to provide adequate gear for their members because of financial constraints. Globe’s donation will go far to help these departments make sure their firefighters are ready when the call comes in.”
