What is a fire ASSOCIATION

A common question we receive here at North Bench Fire is “what is a fire association?” A fire association is a fire department that is not taxpayer funded, its funding is based on voluntary dues paid by individuals and businesses in the district. North Bench Fire does not receive any taxpayer dollars and is instead 100% funded by dues and donations.

If you choose to not belong to the association and require fire services, you may be charged for the services we provide. Members who choose to support the district by paying dues are never charged for any of the services we provide.
