Firehouse Subs Grant

On May 28, 2013, the Board of Trustees of the Orland Fire Protection District unanimously approved a request to replace the existing public safety educational trailer. The trailer is 25 years old and has been placed in limited service because of safety concerns and it is no longer road worthy.

The Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation gives away millions of dollars a year to first responders. On Friday, August 2nd the Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation awarded the Orland Fire Protection District $20,000 to support the funding of this new public safety trailer, which will provide fire safety, home/office safety and severe weather preparedness educational programs. The safety trailer is one of the most valuable public safety educational tools the District has for teaching, and this new unit will allow the District to expand its delivery of programs beyond elementary school age groups, including the growing senior population in Orland Park.
