Memorial Day. A day of remembrance. A day of pride. A day to count your blessings and to thank your fellow man.
We at Gateway Fire Supplies treat this day as such by honoring the brave men and women who have fought and died while serving in our country’s armed forces. We also thank the commitment and courage of those currently serving and we want to help in any way that we can.
Which is why we did our part by supplying troops stationed in Iraq with our all-American made products. Specifically, we sold 500 units of this 5 lb. Buckeye ABC Fire Extinguisher [LINKED] because the extinguishers that they had in-house were found to be inadequate. They needed to update and luckily all of our Buckeye brand extinguishers undergo rigorous testing, both in-house and by third party testing organizations to guarantee maximum efficiency that will last. Though it hardly stacks up to the brave sacrifice that they make daily, we like to believe that we made a small contribution to the safety of those who keep us safe.
We provided all the necessary documentation to assist in getting the order through customs, where the international company associated with the armed forces then picked it up at the Buckeye plant and shipped it across seas. The product has now safely made its way to the troops!
We further continue our support of America by getting our supplies from Buckeye, whose products are all made in the USA. In fact, all of our extinguishers and foam concentrate products are shipped directly from the manufacturing plant or one of the nine warehouses located throughout the United States.
Whether we are selling directly to the troops or buying all-American or helping to protect the all-American family, Gateway Fire Supplies is proud to serve in any way that we can. We hope you have a good Memorial Day.
