On Thursday, Aug. 7, 2014, Davis Lake Volunteer Fire Department celebrated with Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation the donation of $8,900 for much needed life-saving equipment. The attendees from Firehouse Subs were franchisees owners: James Cain, John Porter and Claudia Porter, area representative David Conklin and Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation senior manager of Foundation development Meghan Vargas. Representing Davis Lake Volunteer Fire Department was Chief Patrick Eskew, Donald Toole, Frankie Tatum and Dale Trottier. The event was held at Firehouse Subs Restaurant, 4704 Cahaba River Road, Birmingham, AL. Davis Lake Volunteer Fire Department received a Scott’s Thermal Imaging camera and a new 6 X 12 trailer. The donated thermal imaging camera will detect body heat and hot spots in burning buildings, allowing firefighters to reach victims quicker and to put out deadly fires. The trailer will replace the department’s outdated trailer and allow the department to safely and securely transport DLFD’s Kubota vehicle and fire fighting equipment for woods fires.

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. Through the non-profit 501 (c) (3), Firehouse Subs has given $10.1 million to hometown heroes in 41 states and Puerto Rico, including more than $668,100 in Alabama.

Davis Lake Fire Department would like to express its deep appreciation to Firehouse Subs founders Chris and Robin Sorensen. Plus, all the Firehouse Subs representatives at the dedication ceremony for their generous donation of life-saving equipment to the Davis Lake Volunteer Fire Department and their support to first-responders and public safety organizations.
