The Double Springs Fire and Rescue will be sending out our yearly Fire Fee in June of each year. Fire fees are $60.00 and are due July 1st , delinquent October 1. The department would like to thank you in advance for your help in this effort to raise funds for the Fire Service in your area. These funds are used only for the Fire Department and go toward purchasing new equipment needed for the department. For example, to fully equip just one fire fighter with the basic needs boots, pants, coat and helmet, the cost would run over $2000.00. NFPA (National Fire Prevention Association) continues to require the same standards for Volunteer Departments as they do for the Big Full-Time Departments. With no regard to the budgets of small municipalities, therefore small departments must rely on the community for funding.
We try hard to provide Double Springs and our coverage area with the highest protection we can and to set new goals for the department with department training and personal training. But with higher goals comes higher cost. Many people do not realize the cost of maintaining a Fire Department. Many do not see the need for spending hundreds of dollars on equipment that may only be used a couple of times per year. But that may be the very piece of equipment we need to save just one life.
