The Navarre Beach Fire Rescue is better equipped to keep all community members safe thanks to a grant from Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation. The $14,111.15 grant will be used to purchase Air Bag system and Rescue Struts, fulfilling a critical need within the department.
This air bag system and rescue struts will not only be used in vehicle accidents, but also building collapse and other heavy rescue incidents.
“We are committed to helping organizations such as Navarre Beach Fire Rescue continue their lifesaving work within local communities. We are honored to be able to award this grant and do our part to ensure that Navarre Beach is safer for everyone, including first responders,” said Robin Peters, executive director, Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation.
The air bags and struts will be used in conjunction with our TNT rescue tools awarded by Firehouse Subs in 2018, to help not only the people who live and visit Navarre Beach but also those in our neighboring Fire Districts
