COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

Firehouse Subs is continuing its mission of supporting hometown heroes.

The restaurant awarded over $81,535 worth of life-saving equipment grants to local first responder departments through its public safety foundation.  The departments awarded were Phenix City Fire Rescue, Tazewell Volunteer Fire Department in Buena Vista, and Talbot County EMA.

The Phenix City and Tazewell fire departments received a tool to help rescue people pinned in cars, and Talbot County EMA  received 20 automated external defibrillators.

“I’m really proud to be able to be a part of this. You know more importantly, we hear about the equipment that we are able to grant to departments and you hear about the lives saved because of the equipment in service,” said Robin Peters, the executive director of Fire House Subs Safety Department.

Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation was founded in 2005 in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. The mission of the foundation is to provide funding, life-saving equipment and educational opportunities for first responders and public safety organizations.
