At the 2015 FDIC International show in Indianapolis, IN, Tempest Technology Corporation and the International Firefighter Cancer Foundation worked together to raise awareness on the cancer risks within the fire service with the giveaway of a custom airbrushed Power Blower™ by Tempest.
In 2013, the two organizations announced their partnership and teamwork in educating the fire service on the use of positive pressure ventilation (PPV) post knockdown to help fight cancer among firefighters. This recent giveaway was only one of several ways Tempest and the IFCF chose to highlight the continued cause.
“The work done by the IFCF is tremendously important to the long-term health of firefighters around the world. All of us at Tempest support this cause wholeheartedly, and we are proud to participate in raising the awareness of cancer within the firefighting community,” says Johan Gidstedt, President at Tempest.
Battalion Chiefs Ted Henry and Damon Barkley from Kansas City, MO, were the lucky recipients of the custom PPV fan. The Power Blower was Tempest’s 18-inch VSG model—a GFCI-compatible, variable-speed electric unit, which had been hand airbrushed with a number of Tempest and IFCF trademark icons.
