Our Story

As family of a volunteer firefighters for over 25 years, we've seen departments struggle to survive due to dwindling membership and failed fundraising efforts.


By mid-year all allotted funds from the municipalities are exhausted and budgets have to be strictly enforced. All hopes of purchasing new equipment are lost. We are here to protect the community, but sadly don't usually have the funds to equip our team.


This in mind, a number of years ago, we decided to team up with our family at PA Fire Recovery Service. In 2020, Sure Fire Recovery along with PAFRS collected over 3.5 million dollars for fire departments across the country. This money helped make departments equipment "wish list" a reality!


We now have the honor of working with over 900 fire departments in the Northeast and are now serving departments in Texas, Oklahoma, Alabama, Missouri, Florida and Kentucky. We are a family of firefighters working for firefighters!

My fire department just started using this company...and the limited time that we have been on has been so easy and a night and day differnce from our old billing company.

SFRS worked with me to make sure reporting our incidents was a simple, easy process. All we had to is submit the incidents and wait for payment. The process couldn't be easier!

Since I'm promoting some great people today, I would also like to get Geoff from Sure Fire Recovery a shout out. They handle all our non-member fires as well as any accidents we have on our highways. Great family to deal with, so if your dept is looking for a quality third party billing agency that won't take advantage of your dept, I would give him a call. Geoff is the president and owner and has a true heart to help any fire dept in need of their services. Would like to give Geoff a shout out and thank him for his services to Preston Volunteer Fire Dept. 2

Why Bill?

These days, a fire department's job to protect the community is a tall order. You need money to buy the proper equipment and outfit your team. However, budgets are being sacrificed due to cutbacks and fundraising is harder than ever. Equipment prices have skyrocketed on everything from IR Cameras to Ariel ladders, making each department struggle to stay afloat.

Here's a simple, effective, guaranteed solution that will bring in additional funds. When the citizens and businesses in your district pay premiums to insurance companies that include Fire Department services-capitalize on it.

How It Works...

Prior to the start of billing, we work with you to set up a customized price list to establish rates for your specific equipment and materials.

We then request copies of each report, which can be submitted online through our website, reports can also be submitted via fax, email or US Mail. After receiving your incident report’s we generate a bill and submit it to the appropriate insurance company. Most times, we have to send the bill two and three times and follow-up with phone calls on our end... it is our job to fight for you!

When payments from insurance companies are received, we post them to a “real time” billing log to which you will have access. Each month you will receive a monthly statement, copies of the checks SFRS has received for your department and a check for your department for the month.

We work within your guidelines or departmental by-laws.
