Louisville Division of Fire and Arson receiving new bulletproof vests

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - The Louisville Division of Fire Arson Squad needs bulletproof vests to stay safe on the job.

They are getting new ones, thanks to Firehouse Subs. The restaurant donated $9,600 to buy custom-fitted vests for the department.

Firehouse Subs has given millions of dollars in donations to firefighters across the country through its public safety foundation.

"They do a tough job and this is some equipment that may save their lives in the future and these guys are our local heroes. As far as we're concerned they deserve it," said George Scherzer, a Firehouse Subs franchisee.

Spare change from customers and sales of pickle buckets really add up.

Firehouse Subs has given $10 million to hometown heroes across the country, including nearly 124,000 in Kentucky.
