Walker Furniture to Donate 152 Mattresses to Las Vegas First Responders

Walker Furniture and Las Vegas Fire & Rescue are continuing Walker’s valley-wide “Project Firehouse: Rested & Ready” program by providing 152 new mattresses and foundations to fire stations.

As part of the year-long project, the retailer recently provided 13 mattresses and foundations to Firehouse Station 8, which houses the Las Vegas Fire & Rescue Hazmat team.

“For Walker, our ‘Rested & Ready’ firehouse project is our way of helping our first responders,” said Linda Alterwitz-Mizrahi, Walker Furniture co-owner. “We appreciate how our first responders are always on call and can only grab sleep in short intervals. They need to be rested to do their job helping others. The mattresses are our way of saying ‘thank you’.”

She added, “Good mattresses for our firefighters are of the utmost importance. The ones being replaced are old, and firefighters are always excited when the new ones arrive. They have the old ones stacked up and ready to go when the Walker Furniture truck arrives.”

“We started this project with Clark County Firehouses in October 2018,” said Alterwitz-Mizrahi. “With interruption by the Covid pandemic, deliveries took three-and-a-half years. Las Vegas Fire & Rescue is the second largest fire department in the state of Nevada, and we estimate deliveries will take more than a year. Each delivery takes careful planning.”
