The application period for the 2015 Globe Gear Giveaway ends June 1. Eligible departments can apply for four sets of new turnout gear for their members.

Since 2012, Globe, DuPont Protection Technologies, and the National Volunteer Fire Council (NVFC) have partnered to help resource-constrained fire departments obtain needed turnout gear. This year, 13 departments will be awarded four sets of CLASSIX® turnout gear for their members, for a total of 52 sets of gear.

As the world’s largest and most trusted manufacturer of structural firesuits in the world, Globe launched the Gear Giveaway program to give back to the fire service and enhance the safety and readiness of our nation’s first responders. To date, the program has provided 247 sets of new turnout gear to 43 departments in need to help them improve the safety and protection of their firefighters. All Globe gear is made with DuPont™ Nomex® and Kevlar® fibers, providing proven protection and top performance.
