I am a volunteer in a rural VFD in Alabama with limited funds. We were in need of turn out gear. I browsed the web and came across "freefiregear.org". I placed and ad for gear for our department and within a few days I had a response from a department in upstate New York who was willing to donate 20 sets of extra turn-out gear. I would like to thank Tim at Free Fire Gear for connecting departments in need with departments that are willing to help out fellow firemen. Anyone who has excess gear or equipment to place an ad on the website to help out less fortunate departments. Thanks again to FREE FIRE GEAR.
