The PPE Contest: Win PPE kits or 5.11® tactical bags

What is the PPE Contest?

Aftermath has a longstanding commitment to raise awareness around biohazard safety, particularly within the law enforcement community. We recognize that officers work on the frontlines of crime and accident scenes, where they regularly come in contact with blood and other biological materials. To educate and protect these officers, we introduced the PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) Contest. Wearing PPE is one of the most effective means to limit officers’ exposure risk and control the spread of bloodborne pathogens. Each year, Aftermath gives away hundreds of PPE kits and 5.11® Tactical bags to officers nationwide.

When can I enter?

The 2018 PPE Contest begins February 26! All first responders can enter once per day. Refer a fellow officer and get a bonus entry!

Christopher R. - Tallahassee, FL

"My father passed away and was left unattended for a few days with His two dogs in the house. We called aftermath on a recommendation from the local police department. John and his team were so helpful, thoughtful and professional throughout this difficult process. They even helped us load my father’s Harley into our trailer because we didn’t have a ramp. John stood with us while his team worked and let us reminisce about our father with him. The team went through everything in the house and saved everything that they could for us. During this incredibly difficult time for us, they put our minds at ease knowing that they would take care of cleaning the house completely and thoroughly. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, john and team. "

"Aftermath was very professional and was able to accommodate the urgency in the situation. They explained the services and was able to relieve my worries as they dealt with the insurance company. Other companies were unable to take the job or handle the job with efficiency to get the ball moving. Since I was needing the job done in a small window of time."
