The American Fork Fire Department and Pleasant Grove Fire Department have partnered with their local Firehouse Subs restaurant to distribute free carbon monoxide detectors (CO) to community members in need. The public is encouraged to visit the American Fork Firehouse Subs restaurant on March 26 and April 16 to receive the detectors while supplies last.
Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation recently awarded 263 CO detectors to American Fork Fire Department and 212 CO detectors to Pleasant Grove Fire Department thanks to the fundraising efforts during the Foundation’s largest annual fundraiser, Public Safety Month, which in 2015 focused on CO education and prevention.

ABOUT FIREHOUSE SUBS PUBLIC SAFETY FOUNDATION
In 2005, Firehouse Subs created 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 $17 million to hometown heroes in 44 states and Puerto Rico, including more than $246,962 in Utah.
IN-RESTAURANT FUNDRAISING INITIATIVES
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.
