Where does the squad get the funds to purchase equipment and pay building expenses?

The WMFAS operates primarily on donations.  The generosity of those who have used our services and those who respond to fund raisers and mail outs keep the squad going.  Expenses continually rise with the cost of fuel, electric and general repairs.  Volunteers do their best to keep equipment in good working order and take pride in maintaining the buildings.  Donations are carefully managed to provide the best service with the latest equipment.
