The offer is available for in-restaurant orders only. Those eligible include firefighters, police officers, EMTs and others who help save lives.

The deal includes any two sandwiches, including the limited-time-only Pepperoni Pizza Meatball sub and the new limited-time-only King’s Hawaiian Pork & Slaw sandwich, which supports the Hawaii Disaster Relief Fund.

If you’re not a first responder, you can show your support at Firehouse Subs by purchasing medallions for $1 or $5 that benefit the Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation.

The foundation’s mission is to provide local first responders with lifesaving equipment and resources. To date, it has raised more than $79 million for “hometown heroes” across the country.

Other first responder discounts this month and beyond include 50% off at Reebok, a discount of 8% at Hotels.com and up to 30% off from Samsung.

Lowe’s is also offering a deal for first responders in October. Through the end of the month, eligible first responders can sign up on Lowes’ website and receive a coupon book with up to $1,500 in savings.

The discounts will come via email after you verify your status through ID.me. The coupons can be redeemed through Oct. 31 and include 30% off cabinets, 25% off select bath and kitchen faucets, 10% off Kobalt outdoor power equipment and power tools, and more.
