Mitigation Rate Notes

The mitigation rates above are average “billing levels”, and are typical for the incident responses listed, however, when a claim is submitted, it will be itemized and based on actual services provided.

These average mitigation rates were determined by itemizing costs for typical run (from the time a fire apparatus leaves the station until it returns to the station) and are based on actual costs, using amortized schedules for apparatus (including useful life, equipment, repairs and maintenance) and labor rates (an average department’s “actual personnel expense” and not just a firefighter’s basic wage). The actual personnel expense includes costs such as wages, retirement, benefits, workers comp, insurance, etc.
