Volunteer Fire Department Donations
Does your Department/Company have a policy on use of Department/Company funds to make donations to other community organizations? Since most volunteer companies rely on donations for some portion of their funding presumably to support fire company operations, is it proper to then take that money and donate it to another cause? On the other hand, we are seen as supporting our "community", so when a need comes up, is there anything wrong with helping out in a community cause? Any laws/guidelines that would prevent use of company funds for other causes?
