DripDrop Partners with NVFC to Donate 547,000 Servings of Dehydration Relief Mix to Volunteer Firefighters
July 25, 2023
The National Volunteer Fire Council (NVFC) partnered with DripDrop Hydration, PBC, a leading electrolyte rehydration company, for the fourth year to provide dehydration relief to volunteer firefighters. More than 2,700 cases (547,000 servings) of DripDrop’s electrolyte drink mix have been donated to 1,544 volunteer fire departments to help keep their firefighters at their best while serving their community.
Dehydration is a serious concern for firefighters and can cause decreased performance as well as health complications including dizziness, heat stroke, and even heart attack. DripDrop is a fast, clinically-proven way to replenish lost fluids and electrolytes quickly, which can be critical for firefighters as they battle wildfires and exert themselves in scorching summer heat.
“Volunteer firefighters put everything on the line to keep their communities safe,” said NVFC chair Steve Hirsch. “It’s our duty to keep them safe as well. We’re thankful to have a partner like DripDrop who shares our goal of protecting our community heroes and keeping them safe from dehydration and heat-related injuries.”
“DripDrop is proud to support the National Volunteer Fire Council and its members through our ongoing partnership and annual donation campaign, now entering our fourth year,” said Rick Hughes, VP of professional sales at DripDrop. “Our core mission remains to defeat life-threatening dehydration at home and abroad, and we are pleased to be able to fuel these heroes with superior rehydration.”
While the 2023 product donation period has ended, firefighters can continue to receive a 20% discount on all DripDrop orders by using code NVFC20 at checkout on dripdrop.com. Fire departments interested in ordering in bulk can contact Greg.Sumerlin@dripdrop.com.
