NVFC partners with DripDrop to offer Volunteer Fire Departments free DripDrop electrolyte drink mix
WASHINGTON, D.C. - The National Volunteer Fire Council (NVFC) has partnered with DripDrop Hydration, PBC, a leading electrolyte rehydration company, for the fourth year to provide dehydration relief to volunteer firefighters. In 2023, a total of 2,500 boxes (500,000 servings) of DripDrop’s electrolyte drink mix will be given away to 1,250 volunteer fire departments. Each department will receive two 100-count cases.
Wildfire season and summer weather put firefighters at risk of dehydration and heat-related injuries as
they exert themselves in scorching heat and heavy gear. DripDrop is a fast, clinically-proven way to
replenish lost fluids and electrolytes quickly, so responders don’t get sick from heat-related dehydration.
“Dehydration is a serious concern for volunteer firefighters,” said NVFC chair Steve Hirsch. “It can result
in decreased performance, dizziness, and even heat stroke or heart attack. As firefighters across the
country gear up for wildfire season, we are proud to partner with DripDrop to provide critical
dehydration relief to volunteers so they can do their jobs safely and effectively.”
“DripDrop is proud to support the National Volunteer Fire Council and its members through our ongoing
partnership and annual donation campaign, now entering our fourth year,” said Rick Hughes of
DripDrop. “Our core mission remains to defeat life-threatening dehydration at home and abroad, and
we are pleased to be able to fuel these heroes with superior rehydration.”
Active volunteer firefighters located in the U.S. can request a product donation by July 1 or until supplies
run out (whichever comes sooner) at www.dripdrop.com/nvfc-2023. To ensure we help as many
firefighters as possible, only one order per department will be processed. The product will ship by July 1.
In addition, firefighters can receive a 20% discount on all DripDrop orders at any time by using code
NVFC20 at checkout on dripdrop.com.
NOTE: The NVFC and DripDrop do not make any medical claims. Check with your physician if you are
experiencing a medical issue.
