River Rescue

River Rescue

Your support continues to help increase the capabilities of our first responders!

In May 2020, Cartersville Fire Department in Cartersville, Georgia used its donated rescue boat to quickly reach a woman who had gotten her foot trapped in the root of a tree, in the water, after falling out of her kayak. First responders brought the patient safely to shore where she was treated by EMS crews.

“Cartersville Fire Department would like to thank you for supporting our crew. Without partners like Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation, our resources would be much more limited.” – Chief Mark Hathaway, Fire Marshal, Cartersville Fire Prevention Division
