Firehouse Subs Donates AEDs to Clay, Duval and St. Johns Counties

GREEN COVE SPRINGS, Fla. - To keep the heartbeat of Northeast Florida going strong, one Jacksonville-based company has donated life-saving equipment to local government entities.

The Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation presented Automated External Defibrillators (AED) to officials from Clay, Duval and St. Johns counties on Thursday morning at the River Bend Golf Links prior to The Pond Charity Golf Classic.

That event was part of the Murray Bros. Caddyshack Golf Tournament, which is going on Friday and will benefit the Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation.

Bill Murray was on hand for the presentation, as well as Jacksonville City Council President Stephen Joost, who said the golf classic will raise more than $50,000 that will stay in Northeast Florida.

Accepting the AED for Jacksonville was Mayor Alvin Brown. Sheriff David Shoar accepted for St. Johns County and County Commissioner Travis Cummings accepted for Clay County.

The AEDs, made by Cardiac Science, are worth more than $2,000 each. The foundation donated two of the AEDs and one was donated by Cardiac Science, said Robin Sorenson, co-founder of Firehouse Subs.

The foundation has donated more than $700,000 to public safety entities in Florida since 2005, according to a release from the foundation.
