Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation Awards Folsom First Responders & West Point Fire Protection District

Folsom, CA...Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation is celebrating $34,732 worth of life-saving equipment grants awarded to West Point Fire Protection District and Folsom Police Department.In 2005, the Firehouse Subs founders established the Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation with the mission of providing funding, life-saving equipment, and educational opportunities to first-responders and public safety organizations. Through the non-profit 501(c)(3), Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation has given more than $23 million to hometown heroes in 46 states, Puerto Rico and Canada, including more than $510,000 in California.


The West Point Fire Protection District received a fire engine equipped with wildland suppression equipment worth $30,832. The department’s previous engine was lost while fighting the Butte Fire in 2015 that burned more than 70,000 acres in California. The awarded engine will help ensure the department is prepared to provide assistance in future wildfires, which is increasingly important as the state experiences severe drought conditions.

The Folsom Police Department received three automated external defibrillators (AEDs) worth $1,300 each as a part of the Foundation’s 1,000 AED Gift Campaign, commemorating Firehouse Subs’ 1000th restaurant opening. The awarded AEDs will help ensure officers are prepared to provide medical assistance if an individual goes into cardiac arrest.

Each restaurant recycles leftover, five-gallon pickle buckets, available to guests for a $2 donation to the Foundation. Donation canisters on register counters explain the non-profit’s mission and collect spare change, while the Round Up Program allows guests to “round up” their bill to the nearest dollar. All funds raised benefit the Foundation.

So West Point Fire through the FMAG that was instituted and approved once the Butte Fire really got raging did not take care of the loss of E312?
Federal funding should have replaced that lost engine long ago. That is what gets included in the FMAG is the loss and replacement of any Fire Fighting Equipment or Apparatus if the proper paper work is filed.

It is great that West Point Fire received a full size Type 3 Wildland Fire Rig to replace the 1 ton 4x4 rig they lost through Fire House Subs but what happened to the paper work and replacement funding that should have been in the works for the loss of E312?

      To replace the engine an investigation would be needed. To this day an investigation or "Green Sheet" has not been done. Appears an investigation would not be in the best interest of somebody.

        I believe West Point bought that engine from Clements Fire.

        No Green Sheet? That should be a Grand Jury Investigation on the grounds of the lack of accountability.
