North American Rescue Sponsors Spirit Of Blue Foundation Safety Grant

December 04, 2013  | 

North American Rescue is officially joining the Spirit of Blue Foundation as its latest safety grant sponsor.

As a partner, mission-critical medical products manufacturer North American Rescue will be supporting the Foundation by supplying discounted pricing on product for grants, cooperative marketing, and other support through Operation Giveback. Partnerships with equipment manufacturers are critical to the success of the Spirit of Blue and are also very meaningful to the law enforcement community.

North American Rescue maintains generous support for public charities, serving these fields through its Operation Giveback initiative, which the Spirit of Blue will be a part of going forward.

The company is dedicated to decreasing preventable death by providing the most effective and highest quality mission-critical medical products to the military, federal agencies, civilian law enforcement, EMS, and pre-hospital life savers. The company designs, develops, and tests these products based on the military's Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC) guidelines, Rescue Human Factors engineering, evidence-based medicine, and an in-depth understanding of the requirements from users in the field.

"We are pleased to offer our support to this outstanding organization and join in their efforts to assist law enforcement personnel throughout the nation," says Brent Bronson, vice president of Law Enforcement/EMS/Fed Gov sales. "We are very enthusiastic about the direct support that Spirit of Blue is providing to save lives and look forward to working with them as they continue to reach out to law enforcement agencies."

"This partnership started simply with a quote request for an upcoming grant,” says Ryan T. Smith, vice-chairman for the Spirit of Blue Foundation’s Board who oversees grants and sponsorships. "Once they found out what we were trying to do they quickly connected us with their Operation Giveback team and showed an interest in a deeper relationship going forward. It is impressive to see manufacturers who are so committed to supporting the communities they sell to."

The Spirit of Blue Foundation works nationally to support the law enforcement community through the award of safety equipment grants, funded by both private and corporate donations. So far this year the Foundation has awarded Safety Equipment Grants to the Revere (Mass.) Police Department, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, and the Winter Springs (Fla.) Police Department. Seven additional safety equipment grants are in the acceptance process and could be awarded prior to the end of the year.
