Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation recently awarded the Sterling Volunteer Rescue Squad a grant to purchase $19,190 worth of new extrication equipment.
The equipment will improve the squad’s rescue capabilities for victims in motor vehicle accidents, as well as during emergencies at quarries and farms. Firehouse Subs franchisees Barbara Levy and Marc Engelking, Firehouse Subs Area Representative Dan Lowe, and Sterling District Supervisor Koran Saines gathered at Firehouse Subs in Sterling to celebrate the grant award.
Firehouse Subs created the Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation in 2005 with the mission of providing funding, life-saving equipment, and educational opportunities to first responders and public safety organizations. The foundation has since given more than $18 million to hometown heroes in 45 states and Puerto Rico, including more than $751,000 in Virginia. Learn more at firehousesubs.com/foundation.
