Free Wiper Blades for Local Heroes

Posted: Updated:

A local business is thanking local heroes for their service.

On Wednesday, the company RainEater Wiper Blades handed out free windshield wipers to local emergency workers.  Hundreds of military, police, firefighters, and EMTs stopped by the business,  to get a new set of wiper blades installed.

According to RainEater President Lance Thornton, these aren't you typical wipers.  The blades have no frame.  They have a universal adapter, which fits on 99 percent of all cars.

Thornton says these blades last up five times longer than other brands.  Thornton tells us that the giveaway, is a way of thanking the community for their support.

"It means a lot to us," said Thornton.  "It actually hit close to home, because this came about when we tried to figure out what to do when we had a contractor steal money from us.  And it was the outpouring of the police department, and the community and through Facebook, everyone was so we thought this was a great form and great way to do it, and it's been amazing."
