I am working on a paid on call proposal for my volunteer FD. I am looking to do an hourly rate commensurate with rank for emergency calls.  As soon as the tone goes off members responding will be paid hourly (they would have to come back to the station to sign the "sign up" sheet)  I am looking for any information, suggestions, etc...you all might be able to provide. So far I have not had a real fuzzy reception from my department's administration.  I was, however, given the green light to go ahead with fact finding so that I can build my case.....

Any assistance you all may be able to provide would be a huge help......Oh yeah...one other fun fact....my town has 2 (TWO) separate municipally funded volunteer FD's in the same town......one town divided into two fire districts with two chiefs, two sets of officers, two sets of SOG's, two budgets, etc.....whenever we do something the first question is what does "X" FD want to do??? well.....they aren't interested in participating...they wish to remain in the dark ages.....the town replies....OK...you both get nothing.....so...we have kind of a "ball and chain" thing going on....
