The Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation has awarded the Sun Prairie Fire Department a $9,875 grant to purchase an extraction tool to get car crash victims out of vehicles.

The foundation awards grants through a competitive application and review process.

“This grant affords the SPFD the opportunity to relieve the taxpayers of the Sun Prairie Fire District with more than $9,875, while still receiving state-of-the-art equipment to assist in life-saving measures. We appreciate this grant award and the partnership with Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation,” said Sun Prairie Fire Chief Christopher Garrison.

In 2005, Firehouse Subs created the Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation with the mission of providing funding, life-saving equipment and educational opportunities to first-responders and public safety organizations.

Firehouse Subs is planning to open its first restaurant on Sun Prairie’s west side later this year.

Through its grant application program, the Firehouse Subs Foundation has awarded more than $29.5 million to hometown heroes in 46 states and Puerto Rico and Canada.
