We cannot operate without support from our community. We are an organized 501-c3 department so all donations are a “tax deductible” contribution. Approximately 2/3 of our annual budget is from donations and fundraising efforts. The remaining 1/3 of our budget comes from a county supplement. It is hard to call it a budget, because we only operate on what we collect!! The majority of our “budget” is spent on fuel cost and equipment purchase and repairs.
We currently have 4 fire apparatus and 1 support vehicle in operation. We have a brush truck, but it is out of service due to repair cost. In the first quarter of 2019, we've spent over $5,000 on tires for 2 trucks.
Our Extrication Equipment is older and in need of replacement. A new set of Extrication tools cost approximately $25,000 -$30,000.
There are always projects we're looking to complete around the fire station.
