Felling Trailer for a Cause Online Auction Runs Sept. 5-11

Felling Trailers Inc.’s 2021 Trailer for a Cause auction will run Sept. 5-11. Proceeds from auctioning the specially painted Felling FT-3 drop-deck utility trailer will benefit the Minnesota Fire Fighters Foundation (MNFFF).

Felling Trailers wants to help generate awareness about the hidden health dangers and cancer risks firefighters face. Thus, Felling manufactured and painted one of its most popular trailers fire engine red with custom fire engine gold pinstriping and the Minnesota Fire Fighters Foundation emblem.

The online auction of the trailer will run for seven days, Sept. 5- 11.

Several Felling suppliers have joined to support MNFFF by sponsoring the trailer, from lighting to tires to decking. They are Trans-Texas, PPG, Dexter, Sealco, Peterson, Industrial Wood, Demco, Pacific Rim, and Metal Crafters/Flexco. The entire winning bid will benefit the Minnesota Fire Fighters Foundation.

MNFFF provides resources for fire departments to obtain the best available equipment, technology, and training.

Minnesota has 774 fire departments. MNFFF’s Hoods 4 Heroes campaign goal is to provide 500 particulate hoods to departments that cannot afford that type of personal protective equipment.

A particulate hood protects firefighters from absorbing dangerous chemicals into their skin. "Each Year, more than 70 Firefighters die in the line of duty. Since 9/11, more than 7,000 firefighters have been diagnosed with some form of cancer or a disabling health problem. The hoods are a step toward cancer mitigation and prevention. Cancer has become the number one killer of fire service members outpacing cardiac arrest in most recent years,” said Tim Trainor, Minnesota Fire Fighters Foundation president.

The Trailer for a Cause auction will start on Sunday, Sept. 5, at noon and end Saturday, Sept. 11,  at 7 p.m. at the MNFFF’s 4th annual golf fundraiser for their Hoods 4 Heroes campaign.

The online auction can be viewed at Arrangements to be made for pick up at Felling Trailers’ manufacturing facility or delivery (freight extra).
