Cost Savings Calculator

VISION: The NVFC Foundation developed Fire and EMS Cost Savings Calculators for both volunteer fire departments and volunteer emergency medical services. These tools allow you to figure out how much money your department saves the community and provides resources for presenting data to the municipalities who fund the department. Use the Calculators to make the case for increased community and governmental support of your department.
