All Proceeds Raised Support Burn Institute Education & Prevention Efforts
SAN DIEGO, CA – August 27, 2019 – Vector Solutions, the leader in industry-focused eLearning and performance support solutions, announced today its Second Annual Fire Truck Pull to benefit the Burn Institute, a non-profit health agency providing fire and burn prevention education programs and burn survivor support services. Vector 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 Firefighters Foundation for fallen firefighters.
This year’s Fire Truck Pull will take place near Vector’s San Diego office location and will feature fire trucks loaned from San Diego Fire Rescue and the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection. Taking place on Friday, September 27 from 9 to 11 a.m. at the 4S Commons Town Center in San Diego, California, the event will bring together 24 teams of competitors to see who can pull a fire truck the fastest, all while raising money for the Burn Institute.
“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 with San Diego Fire Rescue and the California Department of Forestry to hold this great event to benefit the Burn Institute, an organization that shares Vector’s mission of educating and inspiring communities to save lives.”
“We are thrilled to be the beneficiary of this lively community event,” said Susan Day, Executive Director of the Burn Institute. “The support of our local fire service and generous corporate partners, like Vector Solutions, helps us provide vital fire prevention education and life-changing supportive services for those whom have suffered the trauma of a burn – including our fire service heroes.”
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 Solutions 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.
