Wicklow mountain rescue secure partnership to kit out members in best protective gear
The Dublin-Wicklow Mountain Rescue team have just announced a new partnership will ensure their members are given the best equipment each time they set off out on another call.
For the first time ever the voluntary group, who work tirelessly to assist people injured or stranded on Wicklow’s mountains, have signed a clothing partnership, giving them access to the best of PPE but of a slightly different kind.
The renowned US manufacturer of outdoor pursuit clothing, Haley Hansen, has come on board with the team for a five-year partnership which will see all members provided with the best protective gear as they carry out the dangerous tasks.
Announcing the partnership on their Facebook page, the Dublin- Wicklow Mountain Rescue said: “We are delighted to announce a new five-year clothing partnership with Helly Hansen (HH).
“We are really excited to work with Helly Hansen, a world leader in outdoor clothing.
“Our team members’ safety is paramount, so it means the world to us that our volunteers will be protected from the elements.
“This is the first time in the team’s history that we’ve had such an opportunity. We thank Helly Hansen for their support and we look forward to working with them over the next five years!” they concluded.
