The funding we receive from Subscribers provides for our operating budget. The less we receive from local residents in support of your Firefighters, the higher our annual rates. Additionally, if we elect to respond, non-members are charged $650.00 per hour, per fire apparatus, and $45.00 per hour, per firefighter. Subscribers are not charged any additional fees following the annual service fee, period.
