Look at the rating your area has for insurance based on yoru current fire coverage, then look at what that rate will be when you go back to volunteer,
See what the difference in your Insurance will be each year, if it makes fiscal sense for you all to vote it down then do so.
If it is cheaper to pay the taxes use your best judgement..
I doubt you have a real union I am thinking your state is a right to work state.
It's a real union. "Firefighters Local #####" I believe. Was just on the web page.
Once a union is involved,it will continue to grow and grow in terms of cost and everytime they ask for more tax money they'll issue the same veiled threats if we don't give it.
