Roco Safer Way Banner Giveaway

Tuesday, March 17, 2015

One of our awesome customers had a great safety idea, and we wanted to share it with you…a Roco Safer Way banner. Of course, if you’ve ever been a Roco student, you’ve heard it many times…”there’s a safe way and a safer way!” Now you can win a FREE Roco Safety Banner (4-ft x 2-ft) for your workplace.

During a plant turnaround, this customer used the Roco Safer Way banner to keep safety at the forefront – while maybe also offering a subtle reminder for everyone to be grateful for their on-site emergency responders! It is our hope that these banners will encourage someone to think (or re-think) a situation and make it even safer!

Register now to win a Roco Safety banner and remind your personnel of the safer way!

VFD Acquires Rescue Equipment Through Firehouse Subs Foundation

Monday, November 24, 2014

More than $15,000 in fire rescue equipment was donated to a local volunteer fire department in Washington, WV through the Firehouse Subs Foundation.

The equipment for the Washington Bottom department is for confined areas such as off-road, industrial and water-related accidents. And the department's members are already trained to use it.

"It's nice to know we have the people with the knowledge, the skills, and now, the equipment to use the equipment properly," said Fire Chief K.C. Lindner. "We have the folks who have spent the many hours training and perfecting it. Now, we have the equipment to use."

Money for the donations comes from the purchase of Firehouse's used pickle barrels by its customers.

The chain has been providing equipment to first responders for nearly a decade.
