As family of a volunteer firefighters for over 25 years, we've seen departments struggle to survive due to dwindling membership and failed fundraising efforts. We watched as our family member served as the Treasurer for his department for several years, we saw how sad finances could be in the volunteer service.
By mid-year all allotted funds from the municipalities are exhausted and budgets have to be strictly enforced. All hopes of purchasing new equipment are lost. We are here to protect the community, but sadly don't usually have the funds to equip our team.
This in mind, a number of years ago, we decided to team up with our family at PA Fire Recovery Service. In 2020, Sure Fire Recovery along with PAFRS collected over 3.5 million dollars for fire departments across the country. This money helped make departments equipment "wish list" a reality!
