Texarkana, Texas -
Thanks to the Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation, Texarkana, Texas Police Department now has some brand new safety equipment.  

Firehouse representatives donated $19,600 for the department to purchase a tactical robot. 
    
The equipment will be used to gather intelligence during hostage or barricade situations and other high risk operations, allowing SWAT teams to gain valuable knowledge for developing tactical plans and decreasing the risk of danger to officers.  

The grant is Firehouse Subs' third donation to the Texarkana area.
