Smithfield Volunteer Fire & Rescue awarded lifesaving equipment grant

The Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation has recently awarded a $10,900 grant to Smithfield Volunteer Fire & Rescue to purchase a Groves extractor & gear dryer. The new equipment will allow first responders to be better prepared in emergency situations and protect the citizens of Smithfield as well as volunteer members. The grant is part of more than $73 million given by Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation to public safety organizations across the U.S.

The awarded grant will be used to purchase a Groves extractor and gear dryer, in order to wash and dry our volunteer’s personal protective equipment (PPE).

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.
