I would like to take this opportunity to provide feedback to PA Fire Recovery Service. Gouldsboro Volunteer Fire Company began using PAFRS about a year ago for Fire Company Billing. We have a separate EMS organization and were not seeing any results from billing through them. Therefore, we decided to go out on our own. To date, I would say our company is pleased with the results we have seen from using PAFRS.
We did not have to change our reporting in any way. The information that was required for the billing process was already information that we were collecting on incidents. All we need to do is fax the information and wait for payment. The process couldn’t be simpler and the results are far better than anything we have used in the past. We put all the money generated through billing into our truck fund which is necessary to help pay for a much needed new engine we recently purchased to replace a 1976 engine.
