Time is Running Short for a Chance to “Choose Your Tools” from California Casualty


San Mateo, CA, October 24, 2017 – It’s the last chance to enter California Casualty’s latest Work Hard/Play Hard Sweepstakes. One lucky first responder will receive their pick of $5,000 worth of DeWALT®* guaranteed tough tools. The deadline for entries is November 13 at

The contest is open to peace officers, EMTs and firefighters; American heroes who work hard and risk their lives daily.

“We know the pressure and stress first responders face every day,” said California Casualty Sr. Vice President Mike McCormick. “This is our chance to show our appreciation and provide a useful and fun way to say thanks.”

The most recent Work Hard/Play Hard contest recipient was California firefighter Ken H., who opted for the cash instead of his choice of DeWALT® tools in November 2016. The prize made a big difference for Ken, who applied the money towards college tuition for his two sons.

“I go to work each day knowing that I can make a difference in someone’s life, even in some of their worst moments,” Ken said at the time.

Forget having to borrow tools again, enter the California Casualty “Choose Your Tools” Sweepstakes. The entry form and rules can be found at The deadline to enter is November 13, 2017, with a winner announced in December.
