The McMahan Fire Protection District uses money saving strategies to stretch the buying power of the revenue received from the taxes you pay.
Because the service utilizes volunteer manpower to provide staffing, employee costs are very low. A staff of 7 fulltime and 3 part-time career fire fighters provides basic administration and maintenance duties, besides their primary function as fire and emergency medical responders. Volunteer members perform all other staffing.
In an effort to stretch every tax dollar, group purchasing is utilized whenever possible. With 18 other Fire Protection Districts, there is always someone else purchasing items that we need, thus allowing us to
piggy-backon their purchasing contract.
Community Oriented Fire Protection
Decisions are made locally, of how your tax dollars are spent. Your tax dollars are spent providing protection in the community where you reside.
