5.11 Tactical®, a manufacturer of public safety apparel and accessories has introduced a special program to support the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation (NFFF). 5.11 Tactical has been widely recognized as an innovative leader in the law enforcement market and has recently expanded into the fire service and bringing with it the tradition of innovation, value and quality.

Giving back to customers and the industry that supports 5.11 is nothing new and the decision to support NFFF is just another sign of the commitment 5.11 is making into public safety. The United States Congress created the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation to lead a nationwide effort to remember America's fallen firefighters. Since 1992, the tax-exempt, nonprofit Foundation has developed and expanded programs to honor our fallen fire heroes and assist their families and coworkers.

One of the most popular products purchased by the fire service is the 5.11 Tactical fire job shirt. 5.11 launched a program that provides $1.00 for every job shirt sold in the United States to the NFFF through October 31st, 2010. 5.11 established no cap on the program and 19 of 5.11's most respected dealers have committed to the success of the program. Three styles of 5.11 Job Shirts are available and are all included in the donation program, which will continue through October 31st and is available on 5.11's website, www.511tactical.com, as well as many participating 5.11 Full Line Dealers across the country.

Dan Costa, CEO of 5.11 says of the partnership, "We look forward to a long term relationship with such an respected organization. We are proud to serve those who put themselves in harms way and it is our honor to give back to the families of firefighters who have died in the line of duty." 5.11 will continue this partnership next year with a special line of products to commemorate the events of September 11, 2001. A portion of the proceeds from these limited edition items will go to the NFFF.
