LM Fire Department celebrates Firehouse Subs restaurant

Big contributor

Press release

Because it has been such a big contributor to Lake Monticello Fire Department, department members participated in the 7th anniversary celebration of the Firehouse Subs restaurant in Charlottesville on Aug. 7.

“Firehouse Subs has been an excellent community partner with all first responders in the Albemarle County area, through their Firehouse Subs Foundation to help Hometown Heroes grant program,” said Lake Monticello Fire Department Chief Rich Constantino.

Firehouse Subs owner Ed Price had helped the Lake Monticello Fire Department obtain a $20,000 grant to buy new, “state of the art” battery-operated vehicle extrication Hurst jaws of life spreaders, cutter, and ram, which aids firefighters in removing entangled and trapped occupants from vehicles by cutting, spreading, and removing metal and steel surrounding them.

They replaced extrication tools that were more than 30 years old and were becoming ineffective in cutting and spreading the new high-tensile metal and steel used in manufacturing today’s motor vehicles, Constantino said.

Last year, amid the COVID 19 pandemic, Lake Monticello again requested a grant from Firehouse Subs Foundation for a Lucas chest compression device, which delivers high-quality, guideline-consistent, perfect cardiac compressions in the field, and during transport to the hospital, for patients who have no heartbeat. This request was also granted and resulted in the purchase of a Lucas Device costing $16,000. This device has already helped our emergency medical technicians and paramedics save lives.

“Thanks to the Firehouse Subs Foundation and store owner Ed Price for all they have done for the Lake Monticello Fire Department,” Constantino said. “You are always here for us, and we will be here for you and your patrons.”
