AWE Raising Money for Local Fire Department

Apr 13, 2020

AWE pits a Camaro 1LE against a Detroit Diesel 16 Fire Truck to raise awareness for its local fire department's fundraiser aimed at purchasing decontamination equipment.

AWE, a manufacturer of exhausts, intakes and intercoolers, is aiming to support local first responders at the local Horsham, Pennsylvania, fire department who are in need of protective equipment using its ‘Rev-Off’ video series. In the latest edition to the YouTube series, the company is promoting a GoFundMe campaign that is attempting to raise funds for a decontamination system for the department, which is currently combating the COVID-19 pandemic.

“When considering the impact of a global pandemic, it is virtually impossible for any organization to say that they were completely prepared for the response to, and mitigation of, such a monumental problem,” said Jason Cole, Battalion Chief at Horsham Fire Company #1. “One of the most daunting and time-consuming tasks we face during our response is decontamination. We’ve been in contact numerous times with a company called Bioquell. They manufacture a system that is 99.999% effective in eliminating bacteria and viruses including COVID-19. The addition of this equipment could prevent the spread of coronavirus and other communicable diseases and save lives today.”

The video delves into the decontamination system that the fire company is raising funds for, and pits AWE’s Vice President of Marketing Jesse Kramer’s AWE Camaro 1LE against a Pierce Mfg. Velocity 107-foot Detroit Diesel 16 Fire Truck.
