Police and Firefighters in Janesville, Wisconsin received a Give Kits Foundation Kit Drop on Thursday, May 21st, 2020 thanks to VIKTOS, a family-run business headquartered in Janesville, Wisconsin,along with Salt Lake City, Utah First Aid company, MyMedic™.   

Kit Drops deliver Personal Protective Kits (PPE) to community first responders who are in desperate need these days as they continue to support the community amidst the COVID-19 Pandemic. 

The Give Kits Foundation Pandemic Medic™ Personal Protective Kits include:  

(5) protective masks 

(5) pairs of nitrile gloves 

(5) uses of hand sanitizer

Accepting on behalf of the Janesville Police Department, Lieutenant Mike Blaser shared this about the PPE kit donation

“This type of equipment is invaluable in keeping first responders and the public safer during the current health crisis.”

VIKTOS is a Wisconsin based company that consists of industry and military veterans producing innovative gear for the tactical user.

“Our VIKTOS team knows first hand what police and first responders put on the line daily to keep their community safe. Our company name is a derivative of the Latin word Invictus meaning “unconquered.” Unconquered is exactly how we all want the Janesville police and first responders to remain in this pandemic fight. We support those supporting our community.” Stated Justin Fox, president of VIKTOS.

Contributing alongside VIKTOS was MyMedic, who, out of their Salt Lake City warehouse, handle packaging and shipping for the Give Kits Foundation 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.

“As a former wild-land firefighter, I've always had an appreciation for the fire part of GJFD's mission. It took my daughter working a couple of shifts with them during her EMT training to make me appreciate the bulk of what they do. Day in and day out, GJ Fire Department folks are coming to the aid of people who are in medical crisis. You call on the Fire Department on one of the worst days of your life, but for them, that's an everyday reality.”
