ABSTRACT

Funding Alternatives for Fire and Emergency Services   [open pdf - 2MB]

Stimulated by local budget pressures, fire and emergency medical service departments in the United States are using a wide array of fundraising approaches beyond traditional methods. These range from small fees for special services to major new sources of funds such as benefit assessments. The alternatives include impact development fees and subscription charges, in which households pay a flat rate and then are absolved from any further payments associated with emergency medical services beyond those covered by their medical insurance.
