These unique red coasters are crafted from a decommissioned fire hose. The hoses used to make these coasters come from a variety of fire departments across the United States: each set comes with a personal card indicating when the hose was decommissioned from which particular fire department (10% of each sale is donated back to them). Before being turned into coasters, the fire hoses are extensively cleaned over several days so to restore life to them. No dye is used to color the hoses - that is their natural look. You see, when an equipment operator is delegating where the water needs to go, colored fire hoses allow the operator the ease of selecting where to direct the water.
Coasters with history, perfect for any drink.

For one reason or another, a fire hose is eventually decommissioned - meaning, it is retired from active service. The hose may have been damaged on scene, or simply retired after reaching the end of its useful life. Tons of hoses across the country are decommissioned every year. To prevent these fire hoses from ending up in landfills, they are re-commissioned as coasters, belts, etc.
