BareBones WorkWear® has announced it has been selected by the Sierra Conservation Center (SCC) to provide specialized wild land firefighting boots for inmates being trained to help fight fires. SCC, a division of the California Department of Corrections, functions as the center for training staff and inmates in wild land firefighting techniques for southern California.
Mason Moore, COO of BareBones WorkWear®, explained the brick & mortar retailer and franchisor is providing Hathorn Explorer boots for 1,300 personnel and minimum to low-medium custody inmates.
“When it comes to battling destructive and dangerous wild fires, safety gear is of the utmost importance,” said Moore. “All of us at BareBones are honored to help keep those on the fire lines safe with some of the best protective foot wear.”
BareBones WorkWear® was recently named “Best Men’s Clothing“ in the A-List Sacramento 2017 Best of Contest, sponsored by KCRA-TV, an NBC affiliate. It’s the first time a blue-collar clothing retail store earned the top spot in the competition with traditional suit and tie stores.
In addition to work boots, BareBones also carries other safety gear for first responders and other workers who face intense conditions on the job, including gloves, eye protection, fire resistant apparel and more.
“BareBones is proud to serve the department of corrections,” said Moore. “We are all about providing the apparel and gear needed for fire service personnel to do their jobs safely and in comfort. We salute workers in every field – first responders, food service, construction, electrical, and others who are the backbone and muscle of America. Firefighting inmates from various California Conservation Camps play such an important role in helping professional firefighters minimize the potential for loss of life and property during wild land fire seasons.”
BareBones WorkWear® is the national provider of useful apparel, footwear, and accessories for work, life and outdoor. The business was named to Inc.
