Grant is part of more than $71 million given by Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation to public safety organizations across the U.S.
Clinton, TN – The City of Clinton Fire Department members are now better equipped to handle emergencies and keep the local community of Clinton safe thanks to a grant from Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation. The Foundation recognized our critical need and awarded us $17,485.00 to purchase stabilization cribbing.
“We are extremely grateful to Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation and our local Firehouse Subs in Clinton for providing us with this grant and positively impacting our community,” said Fire Chief Jeff Little. “We are so grateful to be given the tools needed to continue to keep the citizens of Clinton safe and protected.”
The stabilization cribbing will be used to stabilize vehicles that have been involved in crashes, or to stabilize a damaged structure while emergency operations are taking place. Our firefighters are all trained in emergency vehicle extrication, utilizing tools such as the “Jaws of Life”, and this cribbing will allow them to safely conduct those operation.
