Our typical community saves over $11,000.

If your department doesn’t understand the impact of current apparatus trends and makes a common mistake, it leads to a big problem.

The biggest fire department financial problem

is that many fire departments don’t know how to financially adjust for a fire truck that is growing larger in proportion to its budget.

And since financial issues compound, that is, get bigger and bigger in the future, fire departments will find themselves in the future with:

  • More debt
  • Older trucks
  • Less money

And tomorrow’s leaders will look back on today’s decision and ask “who did this to us?”

How to avoid the problem

Think of the purchase as part of the department’s legacy, not just a transaction.  Understand the relationship between today’s financial choice and how it will impact the future.
