WASHINGTON — Summer brings outdoor adventures, water activities, and barbecues, but it also can bring danger to firefighters, who exert themselves in heavy gear and high temperatures. To help prevent firefighter dehydration and heat-related injuries, especially during long incidents and wildfire response, DripDrop Hydration, PBC, has partnered with the National Volunteer Fire Council (NVFC) for the fifth year to donate 200,000 sticks of electrolyte drink mix to volunteer fire departments.


DripDrop is a fast, clinically-proven way to replenish lost fluids and electrolytes quickly, so responders can perform at their best, both physically and mentally. This year, a total of 1,000 volunteer fire departments will receive two cases (200 sticks) each of DripDrop electrolyte drink mix.

“The health and safety of volunteer firefighters is a top priority for the NVFC,” said NVFC Chair Steve Hirsch. “We are pleased to partner with DripDrop once again to ensure responders across the country stay hydrated and avoid illness this summer in order to come home safely and serve their communities at their best.”

“DripDrop is proud to partner with the National Volunteer Fire Council and its meaningful efforts to support fire and EMS organizations through a wide range of services and programs,” said John Shea, CMO of DripDrop Hydration. “We are privileged to have our product trusted by firefighters around the country and are pleased to be able to fuel these heroes in their efforts to keep communities safe.”

Active volunteer firefighters located in the U.S. can enter for the chance to win a product donation between July 8 and July 21 at 11:59 p.m. PDT. Only one entry per fire department will be accepted. A total of 1,000 fire departments will be randomly selected from all eligible entries. In the event of selection, each selected firehouse will be notified by email the week of July 21st and shipped two 100ct cases of DripDrop. Enter here:
