Barrow County residents are invited to Firehouse Subs in Winder on Saturday for an event ushering in Fire Safety Month.
Stop by the restaurant between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. to see demonstrations by Barrow County Emergency Services personnel and to receive fire safety tips. Kids receive a free fire hat.
“We are honored to be celebrating this kickoff with Firehouse Subs,” Lt. Scott Dakin, public information officer for Barrow County Emergency Services, said in a news release announcing the event. “It will be a fun couple of hours where citizens can meet some of the great firefighters and EMT’s that work with Barrow County Emergency Services as well as the great staff at Firehouse Subs.”
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. According to a news release, through this nonprofit organization, Firehouse Subs has given $5.2 million to hometown heroes in 33 states and Puerto Rico.
