Halyard Health launches ' Fist Bump for Heroes’ to celebrate first responders

ALPHARETTA, Ga.— Halyard Health (NYSE: HYH) today launched its ‘Fist Bump for Heroes’ campaign to recognize and show support of first responders across the United States.

WHAT: The ‘Fist Bump for Heroes’ program recognizes first responders – those heroes who work on the front lines, pulling double duty, to protect our communities. The program was inspired by the new, dual purpose BLACK-FIRE* Nitrile Exam Glove that provides protection for the variety of jobs required of first responders.

WHO: Who do you consider a hero? Halyard invites you to nominate first responders, including firefighters, emergency medical technicians and law enforcement officials, who go above and beyond both on and off the job.

WHEN: Nominate your heroes now through December 31, 2016. All entries will be reviewed by a panel of judges and a winner will be announced in January, 2017.

HOW: To nominate a hero, submit a photo of the individual you would like to recognize along with a few sentences about how he or she not only exceeds expectations while on the job, but how they give back outside the job. You can enter at or by posting a public photo on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #HeroFistBump.
