Fire Rescue to Unveil Lifesaving Equipment from Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation
Thursday, August 4, 2022
This year, thanks to a $36,175 grant from Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation, the heroes of City of Hollywood Fire Rescue and Beach Safety will be better equipped to save the lives of their fellow citizens in motor vehicle accidents.
On Thursday, August 4, City of Hollywood Fire Rescue and Beach Safety proudly unveils its newest extrication equipment, made possible thanks to a $36,175 grant from the Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation. Proceeds from purchases made at U.S. Firehouse Subs restaurants provided the funding for this grant award.
The tools will assist first responders by dramatically reducing the time it takes them to safely and efficiently extricate victims involved in motor vehicle accidents above ground and underwater. The equipment will also give the department the capability to respond to complex incidents involving heavy trucks, as well as cut and spread ultra-hardened steels found in newer vehicles.
To celebrate the receipt of the awarded equipment, City of Hollywood Fire Rescue and Beach Safety Deputy Chief Mark Miller will join local Firehouse Subs Franchisee Ulises Lacentre in acknowledging the grant award and demonstrating the new equipment during this in-person event.
