Our four-part series on FDNY continues as we take an in-depth look at some of the unique divisions of the world’s most famous Fire Department. In series one, we focused on the legendary team from Rescue 1 in Manhattan, which responded to the 9/11 attacks. For series two, HAIX® got up close and personal with the team at Rescue 5 on Staten Island.
There is a new sense of optimism in Detroit as the city starts to recover from hardships in recent years. Fire stations were being shut down and firefighters were forced to use poor gear, but now the city is investing money again. Rescue and emergency services is high on the list of government priorities and impressive progress is being made. Mike Nevin, the President of the Detroit Firefighter Association, believes HAIX® is the number one option to keep his colleagues safe on the job and he is excited they will be outfitted in HAIX® boots in the future.
