Hale Sponsors E-One "Tell us Your Story" Contest at FRI 2010

CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa. (August 4, 2010) - As a platinum sponsor of E-One’s “Tell Us Your Story” contest, Hale will provide a pump to the winning fire department for the second year in a row. This year, Hale will present the winner with a Qflo Plus 1,250 GPM pump, as well as various plumbing, electrical and electronic components, to go with the grand prize, E-One’s new Tradition ES pumper truck.

In addition, the three fire departments designated as runners-up will receive a new Fyr Pak™ backpack-mounted water pump from Hale.

“It’s critical for the welfare of firefighters that they have the safest and most efficient equipment possible when in the line of duty, but we realize some fire departments don’t have the funding to support advanced fire suppression technology.” said Bruce Lear, vice president of sales and marketing, Hale. “We are proud to again sponsor E-One’s ‘Tell Us Your Story’ contest and to present Hale equipment to another deserving fire department this year.”

E-One’s “Tell Us Your Story” contest invites fire departments throughout the United States to submit their most compelling stories for an opportunity to win equipment and apparatus. E-One has selected seven finalists, and men and women of the fire service can log on to www.e-one.com to read their entries and vote for the department they feel deserves to win. Voting is open until 1 p.m. CST, August 27.

E-One will announce the “Tell Us Your Story” contest winner at 3 p.m. CST, August 27, at Fire-Rescue International 2010 (Booth 3549) in Chicago.
