Shepherdstown Police Department Awarded Grant from Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation for Critical Lifesaving Equipment

(Shepherdstown, W. Va.)– As first responders continue to serve the Eastern Panhandle, it’s important that the Shepherdstown Police Department remains properly equipped to handle all emergencies. Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation recognized our need for new lifesaving equipment and recently awarded us a $10,642 grant to purchase six automated external defibrillators (AEDs).

The new AEDs are portable, lifesaving devices which diagnose and treat people experiencing cardiac arrest and will ultimately improve the lifesaving capabilities of our first responders when called into action.

“We are thankful to Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation and our local Firehouse Subs in Martinsburg for providing us with this invaluable funding,” said Jim Auxer, Mayor “The added benefit of having the very best equipment on hand means everything because in an emergency, every second counts.”

For the past 16 years, donations have been the driving force behind Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation® supporting first responders and public safety organizations nationwide. During the most recent grant cycle, the Foundation awarded 90 grants totaling more than $2 million to public safety organizations across the country that need critical lifesaving equipment and resources.

Since inception, Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation has awarded more than $67.5 million to hometown heroes in 49 states plus Puerto Rico and Canada.

Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation is honored to be listed as a four-star nonprofit organization, the highest designation, by Charity Navigator.
