Billing for MVA response
How many guys are on departments where you bill for MVA response or extrication? Our county is about to institute a policy where commercial vehicles in MVA's that are from outside the county will be billed $45 per truck and $10 per man responding, billed to insurance only.
We have a very hazardous strecth of interstate running through a very rural area, protected by departments with a low tax base for thier income. Hopefully this will help some of them get by, for one station about 70% of the calls it fire appartus rolls on are commercial vehicle MVA's.
How many other departments do this, and what do you bill for and how much?

Our Department bills for MVA's with a pretty good success rate. We bill for around a 130-150 MVA's and collect on about a hundred at $160 per accident. If the insurance co are willing to pay it can become a nice revenue stream for cash strapped departments. Lets face it you are going to pay car insurance anyway and we might as well get some of the cash.IACOJ Membership 2002
