BRADENTON, Fla. (WWSB) - The City of Bradenton Fire Department has received an equipment grant from the Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation.

The grant, which was for $2,648, was used to buy 70 firefighter identification fobs. According to the department, this fulfilled a “critical need for improved on-scene personnel accountability.”

“The identification fobs allow for a more accurate and efficient firefighter accountability system, which translates to more focus on incident operations in the delivery of service to the community. Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation’s award is greatly appreciated. This award’s success is thanks to the efforts of department personnel who contributed to the grant request and the support of our local Firehouse Subs operating owner, Kaite Fountain.”

The ability to help our community is the most rewarding part of being in the Firehouse Subs family. We are honored to present the City of Bradenton Fire Department with this lifesaving equipment.”
