HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
The problem is your volunteer fire department does not have enough money in its budget to fully maintain all of the equipment. Funding from the area we serve does not cover everything required, so we rely on donations and fund raisers to get the money we need. Without your donations, your volunteer fire department may have to reduce on-call equipment, close its doors, or become a paid department. Any of these situations would end up costing you more money than a simple annual donation. Without a fire department operating at the current level of the Scott Volunteer Fire Department, your homeowner's insurance rates will go up. And with a paid department your property taxes will significantly increase.
