Paducah Fire Department received self-contained breathing apparatus equipment (SCBA), which includes six cylinders, 13 hoses, and a mobile air cart worth $15,125. The awarded equipment will be used when air quality is poor, such as during a fire or chemical spill, providing firefighters with necessary protection and breathable air so they can deliver safe and efficient services to the community. It will also allow firefighters to work in confined space without the hindrance of old bulky equipment.
ABOUT FIREHOUSE SUBS PUBLIC SAFETY FOUNDATION
In 2005, Firehouse Subs created the Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation with the mission of providing funding, life-saving equipment, and educational opportunities to first-responders and public safety organizations. Through the non-profit 501(c)(3), Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation has given more than $20 million to hometown heroes in 46 states, Puerto Rico and Canada, including more than $268,000 in Kentucky.
IN-RESTAURANT FUNDRAISING INITIATIVES
Each restaurant recycles leftover, five-gallon pickle buckets, available to guests for a $2 donation to the Foundation. Donation canisters on register counters explain the non-profit’s mission and collect spare change, while the Round Up Program allows guests to “round up” their bill to the nearest dollar. All funds raised benefit the Foundation.
