More than $12,000 of public safety equipment is coming to Stafford County’s Fire and Rescue Department.
The Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation has awarded Stafford County Fire and Rescue Department with vehicle extrication tools that are worth a little more than $12,000.
Mark Doyle, volunteer coordinator with the Stafford Fire and Rescue Department, said that the new tools will help with replacing an older set of equipment that did not work as well on the new alloy used in vehicles today.
“The Firehouse Subs grant is a great thing for our community,” Doyle said.
Stafford Fire and Rescue Department was one of four public safety organizations in the Washington D.C. area that received equipment by the public safety foundation. The foundation was created in 2005 to support first-responders and public safety equipment. Firehouse Subs, which was founded by two former firefighters, has given more than $453,300 in Virginia to hometown heroes through the non-profit.
