Why the Need for Donations?
“Don’t my taxes cover the costs of life-saving efforts?”
That is a common misconception. Only a small fraction of your taxes are earmarked for our first responders. For example, if you pay $5,000 in property taxes, $8.50 of that goes to emergency responders.
To put that in perspective, an average 911 response costs $1,500, nevermind the costs of essential life-saving rescue gear.
Your donations save lives that taxes cannot.
