The Russell City Fire Department has been awarded a grant from the Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation.

The award of $27,056 will be used to purchase four self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) air packs and cylinders for the firefighters.

This fire safety equipment protects firefighters from breathing in harmful toxins that are found on fire and hazardous materials scenes.

The Russell City Fire Department thanks the Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation for helping the Department continue to keep firefighters safe on every call.

In 2005, the Firehouse Subs founders established 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 Public Safety Foundation has granted more than $33 million to hometown heroes in 46 states, Puerto Rico and Canada, including more than $471,000 in Kansas.
