Volunteer Fire Departments Find Ways to Save Tax Dollars

Volunteer firefighters are bracing for the worst as Taylor County commissioners decide how to divide up their 2014 budget. But many workers say it's not like they're not used to living with what they've got.

In fact, volunteer departments have found creative ways to get the most bang for their buck. From buying used trucks to replaced older trucks and keeping old gear to fix newer gear.

Buffalo Gap has replaced five of their trucks, but two were built in-house to help save money.

Firefighters say they do this to not only save money, but to make sure they can keep up their services without having to charge the taxpayers.
