Local business supports Mt Prospect Fire Department

The Daily Herald posted the following:

The Mount Prospect Fire Department has received a grant totaling nearly $22,000 from the Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation. Fire officials said the funds will be used to provide automated external defibrillators (AEDs) to faith-based organizations in the Mount Prospect community. The sandwich chain, which was founded by firemen, has a location at 1 W. Rand Road in the Randhurst Crossing shopping center.

The Mount Prospect Fire Department formed the partnership with Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation to address the need the department saw for quick access to AEDs for cardiac events that residents may experience at a service or event at a faith-based organization. The grant will allow the department to supply 27 AEDs, AED cabinets and related supplies.
