"Cleveland MS is a town of about 15k in northeast MS. Their department is 100% volunteer with many different types of apparatus. They have about 3 paid positions if I remember correctly and they're only for maintenance type stuff."

Benevolence Funds

Posted on March 24, 2009 at 12:16pm 2 Comments

I got absolutely no response in the forums with this, so I will try here.

Our Local is starting a benevolence fund and we need some ideas on how everyone disperses the money. In otherwords, what qualifies, what doesn't, any tax issues incurred by the reciever of the money and so on. Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.

Hi Paul, I’m a retired Fire Chief and understand the importance of health & fitness for our responders. I joined FF Nation to share my incredible wellness story with everyone. Fitness is only a part of the equation; internal wellness is the real essential for healthy responders. Many of us need to get healthier. If you’re interested in more information about this life changing program please send me an email at: John@IncidentMT.com
Thanks, John
