Event Directly Supports the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation
TAMPA, FL – October 29, 2019 – Vector Solutions, the leader in industry-focused eLearning and performance support solutions, announced today its Annual Fire Truck Pull to benefit the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation, a non-profit organization created by Congress to lead a nationwide effort to remember America’s fallen firefighters. Vector recently hosted a Fire Truck Pull competition in San Diego to benefit the Burn Institute, and is excited to build upon the success of last year’s inaugural Fire Truck Pull competition, which raised more than $10,000 in support of the Wildland Firefighter Foundation for fallen firefighters.
This year’s Fire Truck Pull will take place on Friday, November 15 from 9 to 11 a.m. at WestShore Plaza and will feature fire trucks loaned from Pasco County Fire Rescue, who also participated in last year’s competition. The event will bring together 24 teams of competitors to see who can pull a fire truck the fastest, all while supporting the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation.
“Our partners and clients in the fire service face some of the most dangerous and unforeseen situations in the world,” said Vector Solutions CEO Jeff Gordon. “Vector is proud to serve these everyday heroes, not just as a training and learning solution, but as a community partner and support system. We are excited to team up again with Pasco County Fire Rescue to hold this great event to benefit the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation, an organization that honors America’s fallen fire heroes and shares Vector’s mission to provide critical resources to firefighters.”
“We are thrilled to be the beneficiary of this lively event,” said Chief Ronald Jon Siarnicki, Executive Director of the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation. “The support of Pasco County Fire Rescue and generous corporate partners, like Vector Solutions, helps us honor and remember America’s fallen firefighters, provide assistance to their families and co-workers, and work within the fire service community to prevent firefighter deaths and injuries.”
Members of the local community and first responders are invited to participate in the Fire Truck Pull by registering a team. Anyone interested in supporting the competition by registering or by making a monetary donation can visit the Vector Solutions Pulling Together website for details.
As part of their ongoing commitment to serve everyday heroes and local communities, Vector launched its Vector Cares Program in 2019, combining business and philanthropic efforts to provide education resources and strengthen and improve outcomes for organizations, schools, and neighborhoods.
