Firehouse Subs donates more than $20,000 to cover the cost of training equipment for the firefighters. The assistant chief says this donation is critical as budgets get cut across the board. His crew is always working to come up with new ways to raise money for equipment and training.
"We've got a mailing out right now to our residents," said Assistant Chief Chad Grunow, "trying to ask for extra money asking for extra gear. And it's everybody, It's not just us looking for other ways to have funding and for a restaurant to step up and help out the community. It's just incredible for us."
The new training equipment, part of which includes interactive DVDs, will replace some of their outdated resources. It will also allow them to be compliant with the highest national standards.
