Globe Manufacturing Company continued its partnership with the Terry Farrell Firefighters Fund at FDIC International 2017, the nation’s largest firefighter training conference and exhibition held April 27-29 in Indianapolis.
FDIC was Globe’s official launch of ATHLETIX™, the world’s first turnout gear with stretch. Attendees were invited to experience the unprecedented range of motion that is possible with the new ATHLETIX™ gear in a virtual reality experience for firefighters in the booth. Firefighters then spun a wheel to determine a donation ‒ $10, $20, $50, or $100 ‒ to the Terry Farrell Firefighters Fund in their name. Globe raised and donated $25,000 to the Fund.
“Due to the expanded requests for assistance from the fire service community across the nation, the Terry Fund continues to work hard to ensure that all firefighters and their families have the resources to properly operate safely and, when faced with medical or emergency situations, the help needed,” said Brian Farrell, chairman of the Terry Farrell Firefighters Fund and brother of Terry Farrell. “This help is a direct result of the support and confidence given to the Fund by Globe, who not only makes some of the finest turnout gear available but continues to pay it forward for all who serve our communities daily."
“At Globe, we are celebrating 130 years of innovation this year,” said Rob Freese, senior vice president of marketing at Globe Manufacturing Company. “We have always given back to the fire service and are proud to partner with the Terry Farrell Firefighters Fund, a hardworking group of volunteers that assists firefighters, families, and fire departments across the nation in their times of need.”

The Terry Farrell Firefighters Fund Nevada Chapter would like to thank all who attended and participated in The Douglas O'Sullivan Downtown Training Symposium. It is because of your support that we are able to put on fantastic training events like this. We are also incredibly appreciative of our instructors and industry partners. We are able to offer classes of the highest caliber because of their commitment to Firefighters, our community, and the Terry Farrell Firefighters Fund. The West Coast Offense and East Coast Rescue Solutions are two of Tge fire services preeminent training companies, and their willingness to donate their time, effort, and talents to support the mission of the Terry Farrell Firefighters Fund is crucial to our ability to supporting Firefighters and their families in their times of greatest need. The ability to host events like these is also hugely dependent on our community partners and we can not thank Hogs & Heifers, the Downtown Grand, and the City Of Las Vegas Fire & Rescue Department for their contributions to The Douglas O'Sullivan Downtown Training Symposium and the Terry Farrell Firefighters Fund. These entities donated the space and provided a tremendous amount of support for the training that took place on Downtown3rd Street and the LVF&R Training Center. Finally we would like to thank Globe Turnouts and Jim Beam for their continued support of the Terry Farrell Firefighters Fund. Globe was kind enough to provide Turnouts for all of those who needed them throughout the weekends training, and Jim Beam coordinated with Hogs & Heifers to throw an incredible party. Most importantly we raised funds for the family of Las Vegas Fire & Rescue Firefighter Douglas O'Sullivan, who tragically passed away in accident late last year. We hope that we honored Firefighter O'Sullivan's memory and that we were able to ease the financial burden of losing a loved one in some way. We are deeply sorry for the loss of one of our communities most beloved fireman, but we are incredibly proud of the response that our local and national firefighting community provided. Please be on the lookout for future training and fundraising events that the Terry Farrell Firefighters Fund Nevada Chapter will be coordinating. We will once again be on Downtown3rd for the annual St Patrick's Day celebration, and we are very excited to announce that we will be putting on our very first "Tactics On Tap" this upcoming March. Our guest speaker will be Brian Brush from Edmond, Oklahoma FD and Fire By Trade. Stay tuned for more information and details, and thank you for supporting Nevada's Firefighters and their families!

The Terry Fund would like to annouce one of our new sponsors. A service called HireAFirstResponder.com recently launched to help connect First Responders (including Firefighters, Police and Rescue) with local residents that live in their neighborhoods who are looking for services. You, as First Responders, put yourselves in harm’s way each day in order to save life and property, and prevent other dangers. And many of you own or work for service companies within your area, including plumbers, electricians, carpenters and other laborers, as well as professional service providers such as accountants, lawyers, web designers and many other services. When residents need work, Hire A First Responder encourages them to honor your service to community by contacting HireAFirstResponder.com, where we will pair you with requesters seeking trusted and quality services. There is no cost to the requester, and only a small cost to you for using this service. Only one First Responder will be referred for each job, so you have a better chance of getting the job. Residents benefit from the comfort of knowing that you are a dedicated and trustworthy neighbor who is always there for them, and who would appreciate their business. If you are a First Responder and would like to be added to the service, please submit an application to qualify at the Hire a First Responder website. If you have questions, call 866-7FIRECOP.
