Donating Fire Equipment & Training Supplies

We ship fire equipment to areas we are working in Africa.   We accept personal protective equipment in clean and serviceable condition. We seek to serve our fellow firefighters with this equipment.  Please consider the firefighters you will be impacting when making your donation of clean and serviceable equipment. Please see our specifications below regarding accepted equipment. We will decline items that do not meet our standards.  Please use our "Contact Us" section of our web page page to contact us about your donations.
