Courtland Fire Protection District Awarded Lifesaving Equipment Grant to Help Keep Community Safe
Grant is part of more than $62.5 million given to first responder organizations across the U.S. by
Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation

(Courtland, CA) – The past year and a half have been difficult for many, impacting first responders and
communities across the country. As we continue to battle health crises and natural disasters, front-line
heroes constantly expose themselves to dangerous situations, creating a need for updated lifesaving
equipment.
Recognizing this need, Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation® continues to be a valuable resource for
first responders across the nation and recently provided a $14,235.00 grant to Courtland Fire Protection
District. The funding will be applied toward the purchase of five automated external defibrillators (AEDs)
and accessories, which will be used to ensure greater lifesaving capabilities for first responders in the
community.
“We are grateful to Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation and our local Firehouse Subs in Sacramento
for awarding us this grant,” said Pheonix Barrientes, Captain, Courtland Fire Protection District. “By
providing the AEDs and accessories, our first responders will be able to respond to cardiac emergencies
more efficiently, and help the people of our district during emergency situations, especially during the
upcoming holiday season.
During the most recent grant cycle, the Foundation awarded 126 grants to public safety organizations
nationwide. The 126 grants totaling nearly $2.7 million were given to organizations in need of critical
lifesaving equipment and resources.
