Protecting Our First Responders | Colorado Springs, CO

Posted on July 10, 2018

Colorado Springs, CO – John Deere dealership, 4Rivers Equipment, will be hosting an Open House and BBQ lunch open to the public in support of Shield 616 on Friday, July 20 from 11:00 am – 2:00 pm.

The mission behind Shield 616 is to equip as many first responders with necessary, advanced active shooter/crowd control protective gear. The group provides officers with vests, ballistic plates, helmets, glasses, gas mask pouches, gunshot wound first aid kits and an optic device for better vision in long-range situations.

All proceeds of 4Rivers Equipment’s Open House will go directly to Shield 616. Attendees will be able to see and pose for pictures with a special edition John Deere Excavator, wrapped with the Shield 616 and 4Rivers logos.

In addition to the BBQ lunch provided by 4Rivers Equipment, members of Shield 616 will be inn attendance, accepting donations to help support their cause. For more information, or if you’d like to donate online, visit www.shield616.org.
