As part of Knox’s continued commitment to reducing firefighter risks, the company has formally established a partnership with the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation (NFFF).

The two organisations share “many important synergies” alongside the ambition to reduce the risks that firefighters face daily. The partnership includes a donation to the NFFF, as well as a donation earmarked for the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Weekend held annually in Emmitsburg, MD. Included in the tribute to those being honoured are Honour Guard and Pipe Band Units from across the nation.

Joni Trempala, president of the Knox Company, commented: “In the development of each rapid access product, increasing firefighter safety has always been one of the Knox Company’s primary objectives. The opportunity to be a partner with the NFFF and to provide support is a small way for us to demonstrate our respect and honour for those that have died in the line of duty; while providing some comfort to their surviving family members.”

Chief Ronald J. Siarnicki, executive director of the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation, added: “The National Fallen Firefighters Foundation thanks the Knox Company for their generous donation and support. They have been supportive of firefighter safety for more than 40 years and we welcome their participation with the Foundation.”
