DripDrop Hydration, a leading electrolyte powder company, and the National Volunteer Fire Council (NVFC), the leading association representing the volunteer fire, EMS, and rescue services, have teamed up for a third year to provide dehydration relief to volunteer firefighters. DripDrop is donating 400,000 servings of its oral rehydration solution (ORS) to volunteer fire departments across the U.S. so firefighters can stay hydrated as they battle wildfires and other strenuous response situations.
Scorching heat, crushing physical effort, and heavy gear mean firefighters face an increased risk of dehydration and heat-related injuries. Replenishing lost fluids with DripDrop is a mission-critical tool for firefighters in the field so they don’t get sick from the heat. DripDrop is a fast, clinically-proven way to replace lost fluids and replenish electrolytes. Through the donation, volunteer firefighters can request up to two 80-count multi-flavor packages of DripDrop ORS to use in their department.
“We are very pleased to partner with DripDrop for a third year to promote the health and safety of our nation’s volunteer firefighters,” said NVFC chair Steve Hirsch. “Dehydration is a significant risk for firefighters and can cause decreased performance, weakness and muscle fatigue, dizziness, confusion, and even heat stroke or heart attack. This donation of DripDrop ORS will provide medical-grade dehydration relief to protect the health of firefighters as they do their jobs and keep them performing safely and effectively.”
“Dehydration should never impact firefighters’ ability to do their job or compromise their safety,” said Dr. Eduardo Dolhun, founder and creator of DripDrop. “Firefighters experience substantial electrolyte losses. I developed DripDrop ORS to work fast and efficiently, something water alone could never do.”
Active volunteer firefighters located in the U.S. can request a product donation, while supplies last, at www.dripdrop.com/nvfc-2022. To help the most firefighters, only one order per department will be processed. In addition, firefighters can receive a 20% discount on their DripDrop ORS order at any time by using code NVFC20 at checkout on dripdrop.com.
