I travel with Pelican and the Commemorative Pelican First Aid Kit caught my eye…Dave Parker started Pelican in 1976 from the garage of his home in Torrance, CA. A humble beginning for a company that has expanded across the globe. Pelican now operates in 26 countries, employing nearly 1,500 people worldwide.
One of the first products Dave invented for Pelican was a superior first aid kit for divers. Rugged and durable. the cases are famous. Specifically, built to keep the contents stored inside safely protected from water and dust.
In honor of Dave and the great impact he made, Pelican has produced a limited edition first aid kit. It commemorates his achievements. Just like the satellite tracker I’m carrying Riding trails in the North Cascades, I’ve also have a first aid kit with me (filled with supplies from the large one).
The Commemorative Pelican First Aid Kit is embellished with a brass plate. The plate is etched with David H. Parker’s name and dates of life: 1936 to 2020. The kit has circa 1976 branding and contains a host of first aid supplies.
Furthermore, selling the First Aid kit out within 4 hours, Pelican donated all that money to the Fallen Firefighters Foundation. You can still win one from their Instagram account.
