In March of 2007 the Fuller Hose Company in North East, Pennsylvania changed from another billing agency to P.A. Fire Recovery Systems. Within the first months we have seen a better return in our cost recovery income. Now that our department has been using the P.A.F.R.S for nearly one year, we have seen a 40% increase in our billable insurance recovery income. As strictly an Engine company, the Fuller Hose Co. cannot rely on supplemental income, such as that from EMS, as many other departments in our area do. With recent increases in operational costs and decreases in donations, the use of the P.A.R.F.S has allowed us to maintain a steady income and remain financially viable during difficult times. We, the members of the Fuller Hose Company, highly recommend the P.A.R.F.S to any volunteer fire department who wishes to tap this often overlooked resource.
