I was a volunteer for 10 years. It was demanding, grueling, and very rewarding. I believe the problem is that the pay scale for what this job demands is too little. Many of the "paid" people I knew had their Rural Metro or Monroe job, but also had a second job to supplement their income. You all are doing a wonderful job for the little money you make. I applaud you.

Volunteering is beautiful ,too bad not more willing to do , I too very big in community , regarding humanity , money is important , But the rewards and regonition goes far above and beyond . Its rewarding Its great to do something in ones community , as well as enjoying doing it as well. Rural Metro is better .
