Review for Gear Up Foundation, South Salem, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I began volunteering with Gear Up 10 years ago, and have seen first hand how this wonderful foundation has helped other firefighters with their training, provided equipment, as well as educated children with fire prevention in my native home of Ecuador. I am so grateful for being able to witness the help that has been extended to other firefighters in third world countries, where the equipment and gear are not durable enough to battle fires. I have seen the faces on those firefighters when they have received the current standard equipment that is used in the U.S., revolutionizing the way that they are able to protect their communities. That experience was priceless. Thank you Gear Up, for all your work and accomplishments. PS: Vincent and Monica have enormous hearts and their generosity is endless.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would continue to strongly promote the accomplishments Gear Up has achieved in third world countries across the globe.
