Much of the equipment required to accomplish firefighting and keep firefighters safe is expensive and bunker boots firefighters wear are no different. This is why Division Chief of Training & Safety Darren Branum of Whatcom County Fire District 1 (WCFD1) jumped at the opportunity to win 10 pairs of HAIX Fire Eagle Air bunker boots, a $5,000 value, by entering an online competition. The community is asked to help WCFD1 toward their goal by submitting a quick vote for WCFD1’s entry in the competition. Votes can be repeatedly submitted once-a-day through September 20th. The HAIX Firehouse Recipe Battle benefits the Fire Fighter Cancer Foundation and was open to any fire district willing to submit a short video demonstrating the preparation of a favorite firehouse recipe.
