Ballistic Press Release
Nearly 70% of all firefighters are volunteers. These courageous firefighters and their stations play a critical role in keeping our communities safe. In celebration of their bravery, sacrifice and dedication, this holiday season Ballistic Cases set out to say Thanks a Million. In partnership with the National Volunteer Fire Council (NVFC), the Ballistic Case Company kicked off an initiative to donate one million dollars worth of protective smartphone cases to volunteers throughout the country.
In one day, the one million dollars worth of cases was not only reached, but exceeded, because of the explosive response from men and women across the country, said Hank Goradesky, CEO, Ballistic. Now Ballistic is pleased to announce an extension. Were determined to donate a total of two million dollars worth of protective smartphone cases.
Volunteer firefighters can sign up to receive free cases atFacebook.com/BallisticCases. There, you can also do your part to say Thanks a Million More by nominating a local volunteer firefighter and their station, sharing your story, or by simply leaving a thank you message.

In recent years call volumes have tripled, putting a strain on already limited resources and making these brave volunteer firefighters work harder than ever. Smartphones have become an important tool in the firefighter toolbox; and having a case that ensures these phones are protected is Ballistics way of saying thanks to these everyday heroes. Twenty years of real world use by firefighters, policemen, EMTs and other first responders has shaped Ballistics legacy and resulted in the Six-Sided Drop Protection technology found in Ballistic cases today.
To join in saying Thanks a Million, visit Ballistic on Facebook and nominate your local station, share a story, or simply leave a thank you message. Ballistic will donate cases (HC, SGor SG Maxx) to nominees throughout the holidays. Volunteer firefighters and stations can also sign up to receive a case directly at Facebook.com/BallisticCases.
Doing the right thing is something that has driven my team for 20 years, said Hank Goradesky, CEO, Ballistic. These loyal volunteers wake up every morning and truly demonstrate what doing the right thing is all about. We are honored to work with the NVFC to help support these real-life heroes. We are truly ecstatic to see the successes of this, with firefighters nationwide being eager to participate in the program. With Thanks a Million we invite everyone to show their thanks to the men, women, husbands, wives, co-workers, neighbors and friends that keep our communities safe.
“The NVFC is pleased to partner with Ballistic to provide free smartphone cases to volunteer firefighters,” said NVFC Chairman Philip C. Stittleburg. “We cannot believe how quickly the original goal was reached, and we are incredibly grateful for Ballistics continued dedication with their commitment to donating two million dollars worth of cases.
