Effingham County Fire Rescue received a grant from the Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation for two thermal imaging cameras.

"These cameras are vital tools in today’s firefighting operations," said Lt. Hannah Jenkins. "The cameras can be used to locate the seat of fires quickly, find hidden fire inside or behind walls, locate victims through smoke, and numerous uses beyond the fire scene.  We are honored to have been selected by the Foundation."   

The Statesboro Firehouse Subs restaurant on Brannen St. sponsored the fire department’s efforts in obtaining the grant and hosted the formal presentation March 6. 

"You never know when you or someone close to you will be personally impacted by the life-saving capabilities of a first responder," said Cannon Deloach, franchisee of the Statesboro Firehouse Subs location. "These heroes deserve the best tools, training and technology and our Foundation is here to help make that happen."   

In 2005, Firehouse Subs created the non-profit, Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation, with the mission to provide funding, life-saving equipment and educational opportunities to aid first-responders. Through the non-profit 501(c)(3), Firehouse Subs has given more than $3.5 million to hometown heroes, including fire and police departments and EMS organizations.
