Henderson Fire Receives New Carbon Monoxide Detectors

The Henderson Fire Department owns three new high-tech carbon monoxide sensors thanks to the Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation.

The department recently received the sensors, valued at more than $13,000, as part of a presentation at the Firehouse Subs location on South Eastern Avenue.

The Rad 57 detectors are capable of identifying carbon monoxide in the blood stream by using a non-invasive sensor that fits snuggly on the finger. This detection of the highly poisonous gas allows for immediate treatment and risk assessment.

Each Firehouse Subs restaurant recycles leftover, five-gallon pickle buckets and sells them to customers for $2. Donation canisters on register counters explain the non-profit’s mission and collect spare change.

In 2005, Firehouse Subs created the non-profit Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation, with the mission to provide funding, live-saving equipment and educational opportunities to aid first-responders. Through the non-profit 501(c)(3), Firehouse Subs has given more than $2 million to hometown heroes, including fire and police departments and EMT organization.
