Whether you're working at a local fire house, part of a wildland crew, or any other community of the fire service, you probably are familiar with having to pay for your own gear. That's why during Firefighter Honor Week, we're so excited to announce a chance for one lucky crew to win a $2,500 GovX shopping spree.
During Law Enforcement Honor Week last month, one lucky police department scored the top prize, and now it's the fire service's turn.
Here's how it works:
- Fill out the form below with contact info, department info, and why you think your department should win the top prize. You must be a GovX member currently working in a fire department/agency in order to qualify for the contest. We're accepting entries up until midnight on Monday, October 16.
- We'll judge the answers based on merit and choose a department the week of October 23rd. If you win, we'll email you!
- After you've won, we'll write a profile of your department for the GovX.com blog, to highlight your department as the winner.
Check out the full terms and conditions of the giveaway here.
What is it your department needs? Training equipment? (Take a page out of our firefighter friend Justin Herzog's book and train every day to stay in the best shape your job demands.) $2,500 could pay for several pairs of boots for your crew. Or spend the prize on medical & trauma kits, because you can never have enough of those.
We're looking forward to seeing all the crews who enter the contest. Thanks for doing the job of an American firefighter!
GOOD LUCK TO ALL THE DEPARTMENTS!
