Bonanza, Ark – The past year and a half have been difficult for many, impacting first responders and communities across the country. As we continue to battle health crises and natural disasters, front-line heroes constantly expose themselves to dangerous situations, creating a need for updated lifesaving equipment.

The funding will be applied toward the purchase of radios for Bonanza officers and patrol vehicles, which will be used to ensure greater lifesaving capabilities for first responders in the community.
“We are grateful to Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation and our local Firehouse Subs in Fort Smith, for awarding us this grant,”said Bonanza Police Chief Mike Barber. “By providing radios, ourfirst responders will be able to serve the people of Bonanza duringemergency situations, especially during the upcoming holiday season.”
