Welcome to A.J. Stone
To our Valued Customers,
As with many things in life, there is often bad mixed with the good, or sadness within happy moments. With the horrible spring weather thrown at us of late, the OAFC this year May 3-6th was not spared its share of good/bad, happy and sad.
At A.J. Stone’s booth, we were delighted with the response to our ‘store’ and to the response of so many donating to the Canadian Fallen Firefighters Fund (CFFF) through the purchase of T-Shirts and Thermal Tumblers. We featured our new exclusive partnerships with Safetek Emergency Vehicles (Canada’s leading provider of fire/rescue vehicles, parts and service), 5:11 Tactical wear, and Bullex (Lion) Training and Custom Fire Suppression Props which make live burns a thing of the past!
As part of our MSA partnership we were delighted to show you the new firefighter boots from Globe and introduce the new FX1 fire helmet. We continue to strive to offer you the best in value and safety for those firefighters who work to protect us all.
While enjoying the new trade show venue at the International Center, a bit of a drive from the host hotel, the wild winds and rain storm knocked out many traffic lights and caused widespread power outages, including the host hotel. The charity fund raising night and silent auction for CFFF, our chosen charity for 2018, was a great success, intimately held with tea light candles and LED lanterns, and bringing the total raised to $50,848.14.
After the charity event was the very tragic traffic accident that killed Fire Chief Pat Bourguignon of Schreiber FD. We had just spoken to Pat in our booth that afternoon. A very passionate Fire Chief, he will certainly by missed and our thoughts and condolences go out to his family and community.
We wish you a very safe and enjoyable summer with your family and friends.
Yours in Fire Safety,
The A.J. Stone Team
