Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation® continues to be a valuable resource to first responders and
public safety organizations throughout the country and has recently provided a $32,888 critical grant
award to Yuma School District One. The funding will be applied toward the purchase of 18 Zoll
automated external defibrillators (AEDs), which will be used to ensure greater lifesaving capabilities in
the community.


“This equipment is so important to Yuma as it will help us improve our schools’ ability to respond to a
critical event, keeping our community safe and helping to save lives,” said Kimberly Sweeney RN, BSN,
health services coordinator, Yuma School District One. “During these unique and difficult times, we’re so
thankful to Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation and our local Firehouse Subs in Yuma.”
During the most recent grant cycle, the Foundation awarded 120 grants to public safety organizations
nationwide. The 120 grants total nearly $2.5 million and were given to organizations in need of critical
lifesaving equipment.
