Why is the budget increasing so much?

Updated: Jan 13, 2022

The majority of the increase in CVFRS' appropriation request is personnel related.

CVFRS currently has four (4) permanent full-time employees covering 7,488 or 42% of our inservice hours. CVFRS employees a number of per diem employees (variable part-time) who along with a volunteer cover the remaining hours.

The FY23 budget seeks to add 3 additional full-time employees to stabilize the schedule and reduce the reliance on a shrinking pool of per diem EMS providers.

The shift to full-time employees requires CVFRS to provide a benefits package which consists of health, vision, dental insurance, PTO (paid time off), and holiday pay.
