I just got out of a meeting. Yes at 12:16 in the morning with my EMS crew. We had a meeting about how to get funds for a squad. The borough that I work in, has hired a professional marketing expert that shows us what to do and how to get funds quickly. Apparently the new number one way to get funds is through advertising online. Putting a simple donate now button on a website is all it takes to make tons of money in a few months. It is something that hit me by total surprise. I always thought that events and fundraising dinners are what bring in the real money, but that is not correct. Apparently all of that has changed because of how people spend most of their time online now, rather than outside and events like that.
