SAP is a retention program that the State of Wisconsin offers for fire department members. The program would be managed by an administrator. State funds match local municipal investments to provide the benefit to the volunteers. The department currently spends a large amount of money to train people and provide proper gear, so it is important to find a way to increase retention. There are guidelines that must be followed, such as minimum years vested. Two percent dues monies can be used to fund the program. The program will be discussed further and a resolution will need to be approved prior to putting the plan into place.
