BREVARD COUNTY • TITUSVILLE, FLORIDA – Titusville Fire & Emergency Services received extrication equipment valued at more than $30,000 from the Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation during a celebration on Monday at the Firehouse Subs Restaurant, located at 2520 S. Washington Avenue in Titusville.
Attendees included Titusville first responders, Firehouse Subs Franchisees Britt and Jeff Diaz, Firehouse Subs Area Representative Mike Kelly and Hurst Rescue Tool Specialist Tom Winkler.
The awarded equipment will replace obsolete tools, improving the department’s life-saving capabilities for victims in motor vehicle accidents by allowing first responders to cut through materials used in modern manufacturing and quickly reach victims in need of medical attention.
In 2005, the Firehouse Subs founders established 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 granted more than $33 million to hometown heroes in 46 states, Puerto Rico and Canada, including more than $5.3 million in Florida.
