Just curious how other departments gain funds. We mostly have to do fundraisers, but that barely cuts the mustard. We get less than $20k from the township, but after building expenses, insurance and utilities, that barely gets by. Don't forget about the apparatus payments on a 75' quint and a pumper. Does your area budget you money from the general fund or by the application of a fire tax? Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
