Bloomington Public Schools receives grant for safety equipment

The Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation awarded Bloomington Public Schools a grant in the amount of $20,385 for the purchase of 15 Automated External Defibrillators (AED). The AEDs will replace existing units that are nearing the end of their lifecycle.

AEDs are used by trained personnel or first responders in the event of cardiac arrest. Each school site has one or more AED units, located to provide quick response in case of emergency. The District will replace all of its 28 units over the next few years.

In 2005, the Firehouse Subs founders established the Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation with the mission of providing funding, life-saving equipment, and educational opportunities to first-responders and public safety organizations. Through the non-profit 501(c)(3), Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation has granted more than $31 million to hometown heroes in 46 states, Puerto Rico and Canada, including more than $417,000 in Minnesota.
