STALLINGS – The Firehouse Subs in Indian Trail donated more than $20,000 in equipment this week to the Stallings Volunteer Fire and Rescue Department.
The department received six Motorola portable radios, which will allow the volunteer members to immediately respond to calls and communicate better with dispatchers and other firefighters. The department otherwise couldn’t have afforded the expensive equipment.
Firehouse Subs locations recycle their five-gallon pickle buckets and sell them to guests for $2. The money raised from those sales supports different groups in communities with a Firehouse location. This donation was made Tuesday, March 27, at the Firehouse Subs at 14039 Hwy. 74 in Indian Trail. Larry Chandler is the store manager.
