Small vol co in a fairly rural area. Some funding comes from taxes in the boro and townships we protect, but the majority is from fund raisers. We do about 8 fishfry's a year and net about $1000-1500 each (selling about 300-400 tickets for each). We have a carnival each summer, but the turnout for that seems to be less & less each year, we have considered dropping it for something else. We have a few raffles during the year like a gun raffle that we're currently doing. We do get fireman's relief monies (I think from the state?) that covers some of our costs in gear and can be used to cover protective equipment and even parts of new equipment (covered part of the cab of the rescue we purchased a few years ago). The rest is paid out of funds we raised or received through taxes.
My "give a doodie" button is broken, please come back tomorrow.
