Bethel and Brookfield Fire Departments have been alerted about a company called Trenddy Tee, also going by the name GearLaunch, soliciting sales of t-shirt featuring the fire departments patches. This is an un-authorized usage of the logo, something also happening with other area departments without permission. The Bethel and Brookfield Fire Departments have online stores of shirts we have designed and sold for which proceeds benefit the departments and their charitable causes. Many other departments operate the same way. Bethel also recommended supporting the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation to truly support the American Fire Service.
