Firehouse Subs foundation donates nearly $10,000 to Shepherdsville Fire Department

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- New equipment is being made available for the men and women who help keep us safe.

The Shepherdsville Fire Department got an almost $10,000 grant from the Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation. The money bought rope and technical rescue equipment.

Firefighters say the tools will allow them to train for and provide life-saving assistance in emergencies.

Firehouse Subs raises money for the foundation through donation canisters and allowing customers to round up their bill to the nearest dollar.

"The public in general, they're very supportive of fire and police, EMS, all emergency services," said Shepherdsville Fire Chief Layne Troutman. "It's a nice feeling knowing that."

The restaurant also sells leftover, five-gallon pickle buckets for $2 to raise money for the foundation.
