Rewarding those who don't run calls, What should we give as a reward.
Currently my fire company is looking at ways to reward responding and non responding members. We want to en-act a little rewards program. Each member (Responding or non responding) can earn a certain number of points for working fund raisers, attending drill/training, Attending meetings, responding on calls, working detail, etc, (Each one of these will have a different points value). Every 3 months you will be able to "Cash in" these point towards for example a clothing item (Company T-shirt, Sweetshirt, Jacket).
We have a good selection of items for the responding members, But other then company clothing for both members to be rewarded we want to find some items that we can add to the "Store" for those who don't run calls.
1 item we thought of was to have Apron's embroidered with the company name and logo for when these members work in the kitchen during our company dinners.
What else can we do, For those out there that support those who respond to calls and put tons of hours in behind the scene what would you like to see as a points reward?
All members are inrolled in a
"LOSAP" Lenght of service awards program that is state run, where each member gains points for running calls, drills/training, meetings, events, standbys, fundraisers, but these program does very little other then a tax break each year, the bigger pay off is only after 1o yrs of service. This program is a state run program and we want to do a program like this, but it being a in-house "Company Store" rewards program. We also do top resonder and top non responder awards at each banquet.
ANY HELP IS APPRECIATED...THANK YOU
