Voluntarily Fighting Fires

I attended an orientation session for volunteer firefighters this evening. Here are some interesting facts I learned: You’re paid an honorarium of $1500 a year, where $1000 of that is tax free. You’re given a pager and all the equipment you need. You’re essentially doing the same job as career fire fighters except you’re not allowed to drive the trucks. You’re expected to attend 40% of the 250 or so
