A Letter to the State of Michigan Legislators:
"Taxpayers expect government to be prepared and fire departments to provide a wide range of services,
as a result call volumes are increasing. At the same time funds are decreasing for hiring or maintaining
full-time personnel, and it is more difficult to recruit and retain volunteer or paid on call fire
fighters to maintain a sufficient force to provide these services.
"The Michigan Association of Fire Chiefs (MAFC) is pleased to present Michigan legislators
an introduction to the Michigan fire service and offer assistance as you address issues that
will affect the services we provide for our residents and communities."
