Why safety gear for hard working women?
After spending 20+ years in the construction industry, I became a safety manager for an environmenta / construction company. Once involved in safety, I saw that local distributors only stocked a fraction of products available; the “staples”. Local distributors cannot inventory products that don’t move quickly or it is like money sitting on a shelf indefinitely. As a result, working women were really having a hard time accessing safety equipment that fit. I knew manufacturers were making equipment, but it was not accessible to those who needed it most!

Today, CharmandHammer.com stocks the largest variety of safety gear designed and sized for women. We are happy to report that manufacturers are continuing to innovate and design products for a diverse workforce. The current trend seems to be unisex sizing as with many of the new styles of safety glasses available today. We continue to add to our offering – after we product test of course! We typically field test most of the safety products before we agree to carry them. If you see a product on the site – rest assured it meets applicable safety standards (American, unless otherwise specified in the item description)!

    The High Point Fire Department is proud to announce we are hosting the Pink Heals Tour – Guardians of the Ribbon on September 11, 2010. The Tour consists of 5 PINK Fire Trucks and firefighters wearing pink turn out gear that tour the country (10,000 miles, 18 states, 48 cities) raising awareness and funding for Cancer Charities. The ONLY stop in North Carolina this year, will be in High Point, on September 11. We have a full day of festivities planned, including a parade, a September 11 memorial, and time for Cancer survivors or families of cancer patients to sign the trucks. Following the Tour, the High Point HOG Chapter – Ladies of Harley are sponsoring a Motorcycle Ride to escort these five pink fire trucks from High Point, to the South Carolina State Line.

    We would love for ever department in North Carolina to be represented. They have never been escorted by bikes before and are really looking forward to this! Please do join us!

    If you or anyone you know is interested in riding please have them contact Chris Madden at chris.madden@highpointnc.gov to pre-register. The cost of the ride will be $15.00 for one motorcycle and one rider, or $20.00 for two riders on one motorcycle. If you pre-register you are guaranteed an event T-shirt. We are expecting between 500-1000 bikes for this ride and it will be escorted by law enforcement. Thank you!
