Department of Safety and Professional Services Distributes Funds to Local Fire Departments

According to a press release, the Department of Safety and Professional Services distributed $24,846,704 to Wisconsin fire departments as part of the 2% Dues program. Many of these fire departments are in our listening area. This is a major source of funding for state fire departments, which use the funding to replace equipment, operate fire prevention programming, train crews, and more. The program requires insurers to pay 2% of premiums collected for insurance against loss from fires. The Office of the Commissioner of Insurance collects the dues, and DSPS distributes the dues according to a prescribed formula that considers the property valuation of municipalities as well as total amount collected from insurers. See the attachment below for fund allocations.
