How is Sumter County Fire Rescue Funded?
Sumter County Fire Rescue is funded by the County’s General Fund along with revenue from the Fire Assessment Fund. The Fire Assessment Fund goes directly to fund the fire service. By Florida Statute, these funds cannot be co-mingled with other funds, nor can they be used for any other government purpose. The Fire Assessment Fund helps decrease reliance on the County’s General Fund to provide emergency response readiness of the County’s Fire Service.
