Then, a month later, during a truck-ride to the New York State Association of Fire Chiefs Conference, I brought up the idea to my pop, who has always had what some would politely call an “entrepreneurial” spirit. Well, by the second day of the show, after a scooter ride through the show for nearly four hours, he came back to the booth with at least ten lines of gear to sell. Then, during the next couple of months, we contacted all the “Cadillac” manufacturers of wildland gear, and after their very receptive responses, we were in business.
Since then, our growing staff has worked long and hard to bring you the very best products available for firefighters in both the strongest and most descriptive catalog and website available. Our main goal is to offer you the highest quality U.S. Made products at a fair price. In fact, the vast majority of our products are proudly made right here in the U.S.A. Our other goals include publishing a yearly catalog; maintaining an ever-expanding website, and, as we grow, in addition to supplying all the gear an individual firefighter needs, we will add all the equipment a fire department would require to outfit their brush trucks and/or urban interface engines, including everything from pumps and hoses to all the Department’s Needs.
I thank you for your time, and I invite you to our “Wildland Family” and hope you become a part of it in the years to come.
Sincerely and may God bless America.
