MEMBERSHIP INFORMATION

It can be said that it is a myth that the fire department will not respond to your property if you are not a member. 70 West will respond to any emergency occurring within the district whether you are a member or non-member. 70 West subscribers receive the services free of charge. Non-members however, are subject to service fees of up to or over $5,000.00. If you have a fire and you are not a member and the fire department is dispatched; you as a property owner are responsible for the non-member service debt.

Funding Breakdown

stretching our dollars & cents

The operations of 70 West are almost entirely funded by members dues and donations from the community.  The Department does receive a small amount of state funding from Act 833 of 1991. However, we don't stop there. Our staff is always looking for alternative funding sources such as matching grants to make our funds go the distance.

Response per unit after 4 hours on scene: $100 per unit per hour.
