Derby Fire & Rescue Receives Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation Grant

City of Derby – June 2, 2017

The City of Derby received a grant from the Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation for an inflatable search and rescue boat and accessories valued at up to $5,821.

‘We can’t thank the Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation enough for the generous donation,’ said Brad Smith, Fire Chief. ‘With the recent flooding we’ve seen in the Sedgwick County area, this new boat will serve as a great asset, one that will be safer for rescuers and those we are working to save.’

When this grant is added to other donations received by Derby, it completes the fundraising for this $8,500 rescue boat project. Derby Fire & Rescue received $1,500 from the Derby Community Foundation and $1,200 in private donations. The combined funds allow Derby Fire & Rescue to purchase the inflatable boat with motor, personal flotation devices for victims, and water rescue personal protective equipment for Derby rescuers.
