Serving the public on an ever-shrinking budget
Published Thursday, July 09, 2020
For the past decade, voter resistance to fire department bond initiatives has increased. As populations grow and demand for resources increase, how can a fire department continue to serve the public on an ever-shrinking budget?
EF Recovery pioneered the process of collecting non-tax based funds for first responders. We have developed a program that bills the liable party’s insurance company (or sometimes the individual themselves) for MVAs and other billable incidents. Since it began, EFR has collected over $1,500,000 for fire departments nationwide—with $350,000 of that for Washington State alone in 2019.
