I’m so glad you have a way we can donate online now. I have mailed checks in the past, but there have also been years where I received the envelope and totally forgot about it and never sent my donation in. This will make it so much easier for me and others I’m sure! Thank you guys and gals for all you do! ❤️
I'm ashamed of my neighborhood. 2% from in here??? I'm posting this to the neighborhood page.
Matt Matt, unfortunately the average return in the county is 16-20%, yet 100% reap the benefits in a county that has no Fire/EMS tax. A large majority of your community has relocated from other states and/or counties that have a fire tax, which supports and funds a career or combination career system. We need to do a better job of educating the citizens to this fact! Thank you for your support!
Must be right across from Westfields I’m guessing

Our dedicated volunteers continue to think outside the box when it comes to fundraising efforts to help provide emergency services to the community we serve. Each fire company in Washington County relies on their fundraising efforts and fund drives to help offset the cost of providing Fire & EMS service to the citizens we proudly serve. As we took notice that our largest residential development, of which there are over 700 residences that yielded less than 2% fund drive returns, we decided it was time do something creative and outside the box. Our company membership decided to try a new approach to help support our fund drive initiative and created a billboard display in our first due area to help remind those that may have forgotten. For those that have already donated, we thank you for your continued support.
Please donate to your local Fire/EMS companies today if you can. Every little bit helps us to help you!! ... See MoreSee Less
Glad u decided to put it out there!!!! Most of that development probably assumes that they “pay” for the service in taxes since they came from down the road. Hopefully the word will get around and they will donate- otherwise it may be time to start pushing community taxes for developments like that! It’s just a shame they can pay so much for their home but can’t donate to protect it. 🔥
Most of those homeowners in Westfields can certainly afford $60 or even less, that’s only $5 per month and it’s tax deductible! But I’m sure since most came from areas to the east that are set up differently, they assume there’s a fire/EMS tax or fee that provides adequate funding for emergency services. I don’t like higher taxes either but adequate funding is needed and all users — all residents and all businesses — should pay their fair share for something so important. You don’t see county roads having pizza sales for plow trucks. Or deputies having carnivals for cruisers. Or the school board hosting bingo for books. But yet year after year we ask our volunteer fire companies to volunteer to become trained, volunteer to respond on emergency calls after being trained, and then raise a lot of their own funds on top of all that. And you wonder why the number of volunteers continues to decline. The LOSAP numbers are deceiving. Look at the number of responders who earn points responding to ACTUAL calls and not just attending meetings or holding an administrative office.
