Need ideas on any firefighter incentive programs that anyone has in place or heard of. We are strictly volunteer and have some extra money in the budget. Some of the members had heard of incentive programs that would pay money or provide them with some sort of reward for the calls and training they attend thoughout the year. Please if anyone is familiar with this type program I would greatly appreciate your response. Allen Blevins City View Fire Department, Winston-Salem NC

OUR DEPARTMENT JUST STARTED A LOSAP PROGRAM. WHICH PROVIDES A RETIREMENT PROGRAM FOR THE FIREMEN. THE TOWNSHIP PROVIDES THE FUNDING FOR THE PROGRAM $50,000 A YEAR. EACH MEMBER GETS $1,150 A YEAR PUT INTO A RETIREMENT PROGRAM MANAGED BY AN INDEPENDENT INSURANCE COMPANY.
THE TOWNSHIP RESIDENCE HAD TO VOTE ON THE PROGRAM, ONCE IT PAST THAT THE TOWHSHIP HAD TO BUDGET THE MONEY IN THE FD BUDGET.
IF YOU WOULD LIKE MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE PROGRAM, YOU CAN CALL OR WRITE TO ME.

Whatever incentive program(s) you choose to implement - make sure you're targeting the right audience.
Peace at home = Peace at the firehouse.
Figure out what motivates your membership and tailor your incentives to meet their needs.

Being from right down the road,(Fair Grove Fire Dept., Thomasville, NC), I thought I would share what we have here. The main monetary incentive we provide is the payment of our firefighters premiums in the NC Firefighters Retirement fund. We begin paying their premiums after their third year in the dept. We also pay for any training they wish to take at any of the fire colleges in the state.(including room for out of town colleges)
