Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation is celebrating $68,307 worth of life-saving equipment grants awarded to Murfreesboro Fire & Rescue Department, WBTS-Volunteer Fire Station 3 and the Bell Buckle Volunteer Fire Station.

  • Murfreesboro Fire & Rescue Department received a brush skid unit with accessories worth $16,293. The awarded equipment will be placed in an all-wheel drive vehicle, allowing the department to fight fires in areas fire trucks are unable to reach, such as greenways, parks and undeveloped land.

  • WBTS-Volunteer Fire Station 3 received extrication tools worth $28,049. The awarded equipment will improve the department's rescue capabilities for victims in motor vehicle accidents.

  • Bell Buckle Volunteer Fire Department received a utility-terrain vehicle (UTV) with skid unit worth $23,965. The awarded UTV and skid unit will allow firefighters to provide life-saving assistance and fire suppression in areas impassable by traditional emergency vehicles, such as during off-road special search and rescue missions and special events with large crowds.

A special event at Firehouse Subs will take place this Friday to commemorate the donations. The event will be at 10:30, Friday morning (2/12/16).


Attendees include local firefighters and several key team members from Firehouse Subs and Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation, including:
