Fire Boating Funding Sources

Matthew Williams ASKED

The City of Fort Lauderdale is exploring alternative methods of funding their fire boat operations. How do you fund your fire boat?

EDIT: I've updated this question to include more detailed sub-questions we're asking as part of this process:
If your agency currently deploys a Fire Boat for Emergency Services:
(1) How is it staffed and with how many FF’s (Rank etc.)?
(2) Is it staffed Full Time with dedicated personnel?
(3) How many annual calls does your Fire Boat respond to?
(4) How is it funded?
--General Fund
--Special Assessment Fee
--Dedicated Revenue Offset
-- Other
