 Presentation of AEDs to Camp Sorensen Director Randy Trammell

Boys Ranch, Florida – The Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranches is better equipped to keep all community members safe thanks to a grant from Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation. The $6,641.80 grant will be used to purchase four Powerheart G5 automated external defibrillators (AEDs) and accessories, fulfilling a critical need within the non-profit agency.

“Our goal at the Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranches is to provide for needy and underprivileged youth from all over the state,” said Youth Ranches President Bill Frye. “At our summer camp programs, this includes having well-trained staff and proper equipment ready for any situation. This grant will help us continue to meet this goal at Camp Sorensen.”

The Powerheart G5 AEDs will be used to equip Camp Sorensen, the summer camp donated to the Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranches by Robin and Tabitha Sorensen. This equipment will help to better serve the youth and staff at the newly launched program.   

The grant was one of 102 Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation awarded to public safety organizations across the country during the most recent grant application period. The 102 grants total more than $2.1 million.
