About the Project
For over 40 years, DuPont™ Nomex® and Kevlar® have been committed to providing material solutions that help improve the safety of workers—from industrial workers to EMTs and firefighters.
‘Together We Rise to Any Challenge’ was created to help document the life-saving stories of firefighters through a combination of videotaped interviews and individual portraits.
The project began with a visit to the 2014 FDIC Show in Indianapolis, Indiana, where the first 10 stories were fully recorded and over 40 firefighters were captured on film. The work is intended to capture the individuals who have made a personal commitment to help protect the people they serve, in their communities and around the world. For most, if not all, it’s a commitment that has changed their lives and the lives of people around them.
The first of those stories is now available—together with a number of portraits. More will be added throughout the year, and for years to come. If you’d like to be notified of future story postings, or tell us one of your own, be sure to join the project.
