LACEYS SPRING, AL (WAFF) -

The Lacey's Spring Volunteer Fire Department received some much-needed firefighting equipment Wednesday.

Firehouse Subs donated 15 complete sets of firefighting turnout gear to the department. The equipment is worth more than $31,000.

Firefighters said they only had enough money in their budget to buy one set of gear a year.

"It's Firefighter Safety Number One," said Captain Marion Studer. "Without proper equipment, we can't do our job. We are so thankful to Firehouse to allow us to do this."

The money for the equipment comes from donations collected at local Firehouse Subs locations, as well as from recycling programs. Click here to learn more about the donation program.
