Klein volunteer firefighters say they'll be able to respond to emergencies faster thanks to some new equipment.

They received 24 handheld radios, antennas and batteries worth nearly $14,000.

The radios should increase response time and communication with dispatchers and firefighters.

The equipment was donated by Firehouse Subs, a sandwich chain founded by former firefighters.

The restaurant has a public safety foundation to give back to first responders.
