Dickies sponsor Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue Service Extraction Team

Internationally renowned workwear brand, Dickies is donating their workwear to the RBFRS Extraction Team.
The Extraction Team is a team of fire fighters that specialise in road traffic collisions and compete in simulated crashes, predominantly in the UK. Here they learn and develop new techniques and skills which will then be passed on to other fire fighters to be used on the road. This training can be lifesaving for casualties involved in road traffic collisions.

Chris Baars, Delta Crew Manager at the Retained Support Unit said: “We are grateful to Dickies for supporting us, by supplying the clothing and PPE items we can stay dry, warm and safe while we work. Due to cuts we are now self-funding and without help from suppliers like Dickies, we would not be able to keep doing what we do.”

Dickies are donating Heavy Duty gloves; Quebec lined safety boots, Xenon safety specs, two tone softshell jackets, Redhawk Pro Work trousers and bump caps to kit out the team.
