Firehouse Subs working to help first responders

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - October is Public Safety Month at Firehouse Subs and the restaurant is working to help local first responders keep the community safe.

Residents can have their name put on a medallion for $1.

That money will go to the Public Safety Foundation, which supplies grants to first responders.

General Manager Scott Phillips said his father is a retired firefighter from Newport, so he knows firsthand how crucial community support is.

"In the smaller communities, they don't have a big budget to spend," Phillips said.  "They money that you give today could potentially save your life tomorrow."

You can purchase a medallion throughout October.
