City of Milton Fire Department Awarded Grant from Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation for Critical Lifesaving Equipment

Milton, Fla. – As first responders continue to serve Milton, it’s important that the City of Milton Fire Department remains properly equipped to handle all emergencies. Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation recognized our need for new lifesaving equipment and recently awarded us a $19,725 grant to purchase extrication equipment.

The new extrication equipment will allow the department to quickly and efficiently remove trapped victims after motor vehicle accidents and structural collapses and ultimately improve the lifesaving capabilities of our first responders when called into action.

“We are thankful to Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation and our local Firehouse Subs in Milton for providing us with this invaluable funding,” said John E. Reble, Fire Chief.  “The added benefit of having the very best equipment on hand means everything because in an emergency, every second counts.”

For the past 16 years, donations have been the driving force behind Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation® supporting first responders and public safety organizations nationwide. During the most recent grant cycle, the Foundation awarded 90 grants totaling more than $2 million to public safety organizations across the country that need critical lifesaving equipment and resources.
