Subs Public Safety Foundation, Inc., a non-profit organization, was created in 2005. It provides funding and support for local firefighters.

Wikipedia identified Firehouse Subs as a US-based, fast casual restaurant chain that specializes in hot subs. Founded in 1994 in Jacksonville, Florida by former firefighter brothers Robin and Chris Sorensen, Firehouse Subs serves sandwiches with meats and cheeses, “steamed” hot and placed on a toasted sub roll.
Locations offer a family-oriented atmosphere, with a firefighter theme that includes fire equipment throughout the store and a menu that features sandwiches with themed names. They offer hot sauces in a range of intensities. Pictures mounted on the walls highlight local firefighting history, as well as the founders’ history of firefighting service.
Locations in the area include 1001 W Arbrook Blvd, Arlington, TX; 12650 South Freeway, Burleson, TX; and, 1600 W Rosedale, Fort Worth, TX.
