Globe, Dupont Protection Technologies in conjunction with the National Volunteer Fire Council have awarded Winfield Township Volunteer Fire Company with four new sets of Turnout Gear.
Winfield Township is one of 13 Departments across the United States and Canada to be awarded this honor. Winfield Township VFC Fire Chief John Hartman saw this opportunity advertised in a Firefighting magazine and applied for it knowing that it would be a long shot to be chosen. Months later he received a phone call saying that they have been selected!
A set of Turnout Gear can run from $3,200.00 to $3,400.00.
Check out the Press Release issued by Globe here.
Stay turned for updates and pictures of the Gear.
Please remember that your Fire Company is 100% Volunteer and operates solely on the donations that it receives during the Fund Drive and Fund Raisers.
