Visit the NVFC Booth at FDIC
March 12, 2012
If you are going to FDIC April 19-21, the NVFC booth is the place to be! Stop by booth #9014 in Lucas Oil Stadium to get a free COPD screening, see an ATV that California Casualty is giving away, enter to win a limited-edition Heritage Coat from Globe, and much more!
In partnership with Pfizer, the NVFC will offer complimentary COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) screenings for FDIC attendees. COPD, which includes emphysema and chronic bronchitis, is a term used to describe the obstruction of airflow. Cigarette smoking is the most common cause of COPD, but breathing in other kinds of irritants, like pollution, dust, or chemicals, can also be a cause or contributing factor. Firefighters need to be especially careful due to the nature of their work.
While at the NVFC booth, enter to win a Heritage Coat from Globe, which is a limited-edition reproduction of the first turnout coat ever made. Globe invented firefighter turnout gear in 1887, and is celebrating their 125th anniversary by giving back. Globe has partnered with Dupont and the NVFC to donate 125 sets of gear to volunteer departments in 2012. Information about this donation program will also be available at the booth.
In addition, California Casualty is giving away an ATV, and you can stop by the NVFC booth to see the Polaris Sportsman and find out how to enter. NVFC tools and resources to assist first responders and departments will also be available for free at the booth.
Find all this and more at NVFC booth #9014.
