    Question Funding?

    In your explorer post, are you required to raise all the money you need to use, or does your FD help you out with it?

    My post is required get all its funds. the only thing is that the FD and VAC started us off with $1200 at first 3 years ago
    My post of no more than 10 people earned $3350 (yes thousand)painting all the Fire hydrants in our town. there are 300+ hydrants in my town and we got paid $10 a hydrant. You have to contact your local water company because most likely they are the ones who own the hydrants. we did that, got approval from our dept chief and finished a few weekends later. it was a long process but worth it. it only took about 5 minutes a hydrant. you should really look into this idea.
