SDO: Costa Rica 2011
In October 2011, GlobalFire supplied donated bunker gear (AKA “turn-out gear”) to Costa Rica. This is the type of personal protective equipment that is required by Firefighters, so that they may operate safely and effectively in very hazardous environments, while performing the worlds most dangerous job. The GlobalFire shipment included structural fire fighting gloves, which are in very short supply throughout the developing world. Providing free fire fighting equipment to Firefighters who need it, is one of the reasons GlobalFire was created.
