Firehouse Subs donates $4,000 in equipment to Brookside Fire Dept

HOMEWOOD, A L (WBRC) - Brookside Fire Department is getting help from a Firehouse. This one just happens to be a restaurant instead of a fire department.

Firehouse Subs donated a new Rad 57 Carbon Monoxide detector to Brookside on Tuesday. The detector is used to measure amounts of carbon monoxide exposure in victims.

The equipment is valued at $4,000 and was not an easy purchase for Firehouse. The restaurant collected donations all year and sold empty 5-gallon pickle buckets to raise the money.

The equipment was handed over to Brookside last Tuesday.
