The Fire-Rescue East Conference in Daytona that took place in January was a great event. The Ten-8 booth was busy and we were happy to show our customers the great equipment and apparatus we had on display.
During our customer appreciation event, we were thrilled to learn from Bud McMahon at TNT Rescue Tools that Ten-8 Fire Equipment, Inc., partnering with Southern Rescue Tools were named the number one TNT dealer in world for 2015.
Also during the event, we honored Charles “Charlie” Samuel Genthner. Charlie was the founder of Key Fire Hose whom sadly passed on December 18, 2015. Charlie was a great friend to Ten-8. His son, Burke Genthner spoke about his Dad and among many great words, shared with us that Charlie said, “In lieu of flowers, send in a nice order.” Otherwise, please consider a donation to the American Cancer Society. Or just be nice to one another when you might not feel like doing so….” Burke also announced that Ten-8 was the number one Key Hose municipal dealer in 2015.
We are humbled and proud to have achieved this success and of course thank you, our customers for your dedication and loyalty to Ten-8 and for allowing us to serve you.
We had a 70’s theme at our event and it sure was groovy! Our Ten-8 team really went all out! The event was photographed by Simoneau Photography and included a fun photo booth. You can click here to view all the pictures from the night.
We want to congratulate Janal Vasallo from Lakeland Fire Department for beating out the 7 other contestants in our trivia contest to win the top prize of the drone!
The winner of the costume contest went to Tom Rogers and his wife Sue from Clay County. They took home the YETI cooler. Love those pants Tom!
