-Unfortunately all routes of securing funding for the staffing of Rescue 1288 have failed. Harrods Creek Fire was denied a SAFER grant from FEMA and no federal, state or local funding options are currently available to continue staffing the specialty unit with a dedicated company. Budgetary funding at the department level is not fiscally possible in part due to fire protection taxing districts still being capped at $0.10 per $100 assessed value, which has not been revised since the 1950s.
